How can it be that no one's posted a review of Marimolin's "Combo Platter" yet? Probably because it's so difficult to describe. Ms. Leventhal and Ms. Zeltsman play violin and marimba, respectively, which gives the music a unique flair. There's a John-Adamsesque portrait of a coffee / cigarette / donut break, rather nice covers of Coltrane's "Naima" and Mangione's "Feels So Good" (as well as a funky variation-on-a-theme from the latter), what sounds like a jungle soundtrack from an '80s spy thriller, a Ladysmith Black Mambazo song, and a couple of free jazz compositions that go on a bit too long for my taste but are nicely done regardless. All in all, an evocative hour of mood music and unlike anything else.
