A friend of mine brought this to my attention after hearing a track on a (legal) mp3 site and he knew this would be "my kind of thing"! He was 100% right, even though I'd never heard of them until that point (nor had he) - so much so that I paid the US postal duty to get a 'hard copy' (eg CD) shipped over here to the UK. I've since gathered some facts about them through the net and if you live in NYC, then go and see them in one of their occasional live gigs (they've recently done a couple of great radio sessions on WNYC and WFMU too). Unfortunately over here in the UK they will almost certainly remain unknown, which is a total shame for a band that merges jazz, classical and folk melodies into a wonderful melange that remains intriguing but accessible throughout the whole album. If you like the contrapuntal rhythms of Jaga Jazzist, Bill Frisell, or even St Vincent (without the singing!), played by top rate musicians, then take a dive into this album. It has become a firm favourite of mine (and yes, that's the UK spelling of 'favourite'!)
