What a treat to the ears! Menahan Street Band are adept musicians that know how to make a statement with their suberb musical expertize.Each song on this disc titled," Make The Road By Walking " is like a masterful mini- composition" in an on- going screenplay that captures very distinct and suburban moods. The group's mastery of their instruments and the outstanding arrangements are to be applauded. After having listened to bits of their discs I moved on to other artists but found myself surreptitiously returning again and again to listen to a little more but ultimately by-passing them until I realized I was captivated by their sound. I guess my initial reservations could be attributed to an assumption that this was sedate elevator Muzak for old folks before my time. I am glad I got past all those assumptions and after repeated listenings in a extremely brief period of time I find I can't get enough of their New Agey jazz, fusion like music. If this is elevator music then it's one elevator ride that I would hope never ends....it only seems to being going up. An Excellent Work Altogether!
Though I slightly prefer their second record, this is a brilliant piece of work. The band plays together brilliantly, the compositions are textured and nuanced, and the mastering is excellent. I can't recommend Menahan enough. Definitely best enjoyed on vinyl.
I noticed at the end of side B, instead of the needle returning at the end of the last song, it just kept looping in this locked groove. When I manually moved the needle over to the next track, I discovered a track unlisted on the album sleeve. Definitely added to the fun only unique to vinyl.
I stumbled upon this by accident, and I just cant get enough of it. I really dont know how to describe it, but it puts me in a cheerful mood. I would defy a listener to dislike this. I dont think it is possible.
