This is an intriguing set. Although put out by the Concord subsidiary Peak, the jazz content is pretty low, with the flavor of jazz utilized much more than any serious improvising. However, the
dance music is continuous and episodic, and keeps one guessing. A lot of different colors are used (whether it be Louis Van Taylor’s tenor, Karen Briggs or Trey Duncan on violins, the keyboards,
or the occasional vocalists), plenty of moods are covered, and the grooves never stop. Its main fault is that the electronic rhythms do not vary often enough (do dancers really need to have the
beat stated so obviously all the time?), but in general this is a more interesting set than expected. It works best as background party and dance music.
