Some pieces are boppish ("Fat Kid"), bluesy ("Invisible Glasses"), emo-rock ("If Only My Chin Had Eyes") ... but whatever the formal basis, they give it a creative twist, add a nice touch of modern spices. Most of the straight-forward harmonic development is more familiar in rock-music, and may appear repetitive after a while, yet it works out nicely. "New Years (Yves)", the last track shown below is my favorite, with a great theme, and a wonderful trombone improvisation. The nice things is that the band moves as one, without pretense, carefully exploring their new sound universe. We can only hope they carve out their vision even more, possibly a little more daring, without losing their poised approach.
