Album Review

Goofy fun. Light touches of prog/fusion, the occasional sax solo, and a Spike Jones attitude.... arguably more rock than jazz.

Lots of catchy beats augmented by zany noises in the percussion or melody, and they sometimes tie into the pun-packed titles (car horns on "Gridlock Holiday", for instance.)

Solos and improvising aren't the focus here, but enough saxophone bits show up to keep a jazzy face on. Groan at the song titles and groove to the songs themselves.

1- Big soaring sound, lightly fusion-y. The jokeless track.
2- Outright rock song, driving.
3- Slow boogie-woogie shuffle with car horns
4- Big-city piano chase, lightly action-packed
5- Faux animal sounds (human voice) built into rhythm and melody
6- Steady driving beat; bar-band sax; breaking glass instead of cymbals
7- Persian music behind a sampled phone call from a weird old guy
8- Odd gloopy sounds
9- Guitar buzz into soft but warbly track; chamber music with motion sickness
10- Drunk stumbly jazz
11- Sax and goofy noises; nice steady beat
