Short pieces from a jazz-minded quartet w/sax and violin. It borrows from serious-minded '60s jazz for the more composition-heavy pieces (like 3,11, 12, 16, 17). But there's a lot of group improvisation too -- tracks like (2,7) for instance, focus on one abstract sound, like a rustling or grinding, sustained by the band through a short improvisation. Don't miss the tuba on tracks like (9,10,11). FCC clean.

1- Calm bass solo, relaxed theme, vicious carnivore sax.
2- A skittish, low-level buzz
3- Free jazz: busy bass and drums, slow cello/sax theme.
4- A heavy-duty buzzing, into perky improv
5- Cartoony faux-march
6- Busy and small. Cute pizz. violin in there
7- A nervous, quavering wavelength
8- Slower themes, a calm serious feel.
9- Wild improv with tuba.
10- Bright mid/fast jazz improv with tuba.
11- A calm jazz recital with tuba, and busy busy drums underneath
12- Cutesy phrase transforms onto blaring sax
13- Snappy little beat
14- High-pitched swirling
15- A cooking little jazz jam - the longest track (6 mins.)
16- Hovering feel, blossoms into a regal theme.
17- Catchy drum & tuba rhythm. '60s-sounding faux-African themes.
18- Cute theme. Then a pause, and a short "hidden" track.
