Album Review
Eme O
Reviewed 2009-01-07
Jazz trio. Organ, guitar, and drum; no vocals. Harmonica and keyboard make cameo appearances. FCC clean. Jazz/blues tracks are relatively groove-y. Slower tracks are ambient, kind of neo-soul; the band takes time getting to the melody. Overall sound is kind of like an opening act at a summer jazz festival; okay, but not ready for the main stage. Pick(s): 2, 3, 5, 8
--Eme O

1) Relatively funky at the start (brief drum solo before organ and guitar chime in).

2) Jumps to attention with a jazzy organ and drum opening. Falls into a latin rhythm for the rest of the song (still jazzy, though). Nice variations in the drumming at the end.

3) Blues/jazz. Inoffensive and has a beat you can dance to.

4) Slow, romantic, 'soul meets bossa nova.'

5) Ambient for 90ish seconds, then melody/rhythm appear. Nice contrast between funky and breezy elements in the middle. Some elements of the soundscape give kind of a 70s vibe.

6) Starts slow, but picks up. Organ and guitar solos. Some drama added by: swells in volume, unexpected stops, addition of higher-pitched sounds (toward the end).

7) Blues/jazz. Unhurried (though not slow). Guitar and organ solos.

8) Harmonica/guitar duet to start. Church-y organ sound. Jazzy guitar. Harmonica solo. Organ solo.

9) Slow, kind of 80s soul sound. Keyboard provides some contrast via high notes. Good for winding down.
