Reviewed 2006-03-04
Straight-jazz quartet fronted by easygoing sax and mellow jazz guitar. Nice mainstream sound, not nearly as "world" as the cover would indicate. Dense, mature sound throughout; wouldn't be out of place in a posh jazz club, and they manage to get cooking on a couple of tracks.

1- Mid/fast. Dense, mature sound.
2- Fairly fast and pulsing.
3- Tropical feel; liner notes name-check Niger. Slowish, sunny
4- Bustling big-city feel; quirky and fairly fast. Good solos.
5- Slow, quiet, relaxed. Lots of bass.
6- Fast and soft, w/flute and mildly Persian theme
7- Midtempo meandering
8- Soft and mid/fast. Mellow but energetic
9- Mid/fast, a bit sneaky/bluesy.
10- Hidden track! A song fragment, a reasonably fast jam. Interesting but kinda fades in/out suddenly.
