Review: Drummer Miller & violinist Scheinman have created an offshoot band from Boom Tic Boom. There is a sense of joyful attraction and shared hunger grounded in rhythmic acuity. Each track swings in its own way yet with a consistent sense of commitment, embodying what musicians call “the pocket”: a rhythmic feel that is firmly locked in but also relaxed to the point of elasticity. While Scheinman & Miller have each made more innovative music in the past, these tracks nevertheless reflect a spirit of adventure
