Album Review
Reviewed 2011-01-22 
Creative modern jazz with a four-horn band and a variety of keyboards, for a richly changing sound. They've got a bent for playing nice at one moment, then going a little bit avant-garde the next.

1- Post-bop based on an unusual, warbly chain of chords. Midtempo, a bit swingy after a gradual intro.
2- Mid/fast, with complicated, fluttering lines. Brisk soloing. Slow swinging ending that's heavy on the jazz. Recommended.
3- Creeping, avant-garde.
4- A slow one that blossoms from low, sad tones to a very pretty song with a soaring sax solo
5- Slow, lingering, formless
6- Bubbly upbeat post-bop. Randomly proggy intro; wacky synthy stuff in the solos.
7- Slow, pretty. Serious (stringy synth intro).
8- Tumbling midtempo chaos. Kind of relaxing, even
9- Soft, warm. Cooking piano solo kicks up the mood.
