Zeitgeist / Here and Now

2 disc compilation. A xylophone extravaganza, ranging from light jazz to what seemed like an attempt at Halloween music; it’s a curious musical mix that seems to make sense.

The first half of the 1st disk has more lively beats with more adventurous and exploratory in the second half and a very much progressive sound in the second CD. Disc 2 is definitely an adventurous interpretation of music surrounds a few traditional and fun pieces
