Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-05-05
Free jazz led by sax/clarinet, but with lots of other elements, including some Klezmer composing influence and violin and koto in the band. Nice local stuff that tries to add some new ideas to the jazz motif. Instrumental; FCC clean.

1- Bustling swing, in a quirky, busy way.
2- A bouncy Klezmer influence: Slow start, fast segment, then midtempo groove. Second half includes a stretched-out interlude with koto(?) and bowed bass: slow, often quiet.
3- Slow and mournful, with deep bowed bass
4- Slow twilight intro with "world" elements, into a nice midtempo groove. Final minute gets super quiet.
5- Sad, slowly Klezmery clarinet, into fairly intense improv. Very quiet start and end.
6- Thick and pulsing, fairly fast. Slow start catapults you into it.
7- Thumping, mid/fast groove. Quiet interlude, then a frenzied free-jazz attack. A still, quiet, koto solo, into a soft mid/fast processional ending. 15 minutes total.
