Album Review
Reviewed 2010-11-26 
SF-based jazz inspired by European folk and café music. Great playing and a delicious mix of styles. They slide over musical boundaries and take bits of here and there. Instrumentals w/more than a touch of Balkan folk.

1. Relaxed and sweet gypsy-based sweetness w/a modern touch.
*2. Sweet late-night tango-infused, lightly jazzy.
*3. Downtempo, lyrical, wistful and sophisticated.
4. Midtempo music box w/a debt to Klezmer and a nod to jazz.
5. Dreamy downtempo jazz w/some sweetly melodic bits
6. Sad and nostalgic downtempo memory.
*7. Lightly bouncing w/tripping strings. Very cool.
*8. Plinky, bluegrassy, midtempo goodness. Cool trumpet!
9. Cello starts the drama. Only :49. Short and slow, leads into 10.
10. Piano, light percussion, a warm and gently sweeping sound.
