According to Jupiter Coyote co-founder Matthew Mayes, their eighth release is named for Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb to the top of Mount Everest. The "step" is the final 200 feet of the climb, where it is said one either gives up and turns back, dies, or makes it to the summit. With "The Hillary Step," this five-piece Brevard-based band is set to enjoy a fantastic view from the top of the mountain, while the modern music world of American Idol pan-flashes and Janet Jackson body-flashes keeps falling down around them.
A more "relaxed" offering than other Jupiter Coyote collections, "The Hillary Step" is packed with songs that carry life lessons more so than stories -- lessons such as: don't wear yourself out by chasing the all-too-often empty corporate dream ("Nothing To Prove" and "Wheel"); love is at times bittersweet ("Falling" and "Today"); take time to appreciate beauty around you ("Tattoo"); and the benefits of challenging oneself versus meandering through life ("A Little Like Me" and "Fool's Tale").
Written and sung by drummer Noel Felty, "A Little Like Me" starts the Hillary Step hike on its way with a tune of personal growth, relationships, and a tip of the hat to his band mates. Felty shows that his songwriting prowess is right up there with that of his uncle John (guitars) Felty and Mayes, while his vocals cast shadows of a younger Gregg Allman. Also highlighting the younger Felty's all-around musicianship are "Fool's Tale" and "Today." The first is steeped in a rollicking Irish-style rhythm (accentuated by fiddle-and-bow man Steve Trisman), later giving way to a more slippery, funky beat. If you pay close enough attention to this same song on the concert DVD (included with the studio cd), you'll hear a different chorus.

Seriously, and without prejudice, I am absolutely astounded at what was coming through my speakers the first time I put this disc on. This will be one of those select albums that once you listen to it completely, you'll start it over and listen to it again. The boys have written a studio album instead of writing an album that was trying to duplicate their live sound. Noel Felty, the drummer, wrote four of the songs and takes over lead vocals on three. John Felty lays down some of his best work resulting in a project full of harmonizing vocals and layers of instruments that are clear and concise, that normally would simply be lost in a live setting. There are 28 layers of instrumentation alone in the song "Today." Matthew Mayes plays his banjo and guijo (his custom guitar/banjo hybrid)with such fervor that you can feel his emotion coming through the speakers. Steve Trisman simply sets his fiddle on fire. One of the first things I did when I received the disc was to break out a pair of headphones so I could fully appreciate all this album has to give. Again, without bias, the band has simply outdone themselves this time. And that is just the album!!
The DVD is the full concert from April 3, 2003 from the Windjammer in Charleston, SC. The concert is presented in 2:35:1 aspect, in full 5.1 surround sound. Your sub will certainly get a great workout with Sanders Brightwell on the bass. Special guests include Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish and Hank Futch and Bobby Houck from the Blue Dogs. Count Mbutu also sat in on the entire show. Without avoiding all of the typical clichés of a record review, do yourself a favor and pick this up as soon as possible, but also contact me to let me know what you think. Congratulations, fellas.

Jupiter Coyote have done it yet again. While most bands are lucky to have 1 or 2 solid albums, JC have done it 8 times. How this band has not broke it big is beyond me. The Hillary Step continues a natural progression for the band towards a more polished sound in the studio. I am very impressed by the 4 songs written by the drummer Noel Felty. He has added some songwriting punch to the band. Of course, I have and always am impressed by the songs Matt Mayes contributes to the albums. Same goes for John Felty. I am really impressed by the progressions in each song. JC is well known for changing rhythyms right in the middle of a song. Throughout the album's 9 tracks, I hear things w/in the songs that I can draw from virtually each of the band's previous efforts. Standout tracks include A Little Like Me, Fool's Tale, Tattoo, and Wheel. I don't know why I even list standout tracks. They're all great. That's how it goes with a JC album. JC combines traditional rock, southern rock, blend it with the coolest mountain rock sound you've ever heard, blues, bluegrass, etc... They've been compared to the Allmans and Widespread Panic. JC has their own sound and it's one that I love. I've followed these guys since the first album. They're one of a VERY few bands I still love as much as the first time I spun Cemeteries and Junkyards. Way to go guys on a great album.
The DVD included with this will tell you all you need to know about the live show. JC set it on fire with this concert filmed down in Charleston, SC. The DVD makes this the perfect purchase. You WILL NOT be disappointed by what you see and hear on this DVD. It's got the long jams in there, the concise 3 1/2 min.- 4 1/2 min. songs, and everything in between. ALL HAIL JUPITER COYOTE!!!
