Despite its name, none of the tunes played on this side are featured in the Real Book as of yet. This CD contains all original music composed and arranged by Steve Swallow, the bass player who created this album. It is evident what a talented player and the composer his is at the first listen to this record. From the beginning to the end, it is enjoyable to hear.
This first tune entitled "Bite Your Grandmother," and the head doesn't sound like anything that anyone's grandmother would want to listen to, which was probably the intent of the title. It begins with a thunderous solo by Jack DeJohnette over the form for one chorus, then the horns play the head. The head is quite unique in itself because of its great use of rhythm and is crazy harmonies of half steps and tri-tones between the two horns. All of this is played over B flat rhythm changes. All though the head could be considered to be "out," the solos sound pretty inside for the most part. Tom Harrell's solo on flugelhorn is filled with great bebop derived eighth note lines that seem to flow really smoothly. Joe Lovano's solo on tenor saxophone begins with a series of notes that sounds as if he's throwing up. His solo is full of shorter phrases that Harrell's, and are played in a more raunchy fashion. His tone also seems pretty harsh in some spots. One particularly interesting thing about this tune is the fact that they walk a chorus in between each of the solos, with DeJohnette kind of soloing over the rest of the rhythm section. I still wonder why it was that they did this. The second tune, "Second Handy Motion," is just a bit more laid back than the first . This tune is a swinging medium tempo blues that is reminiscent of Gene Harris, but doesn't swing anywhere near as much.

This is my favorite Steve Swallow record up to date. It features Mulgrew Miller on piano, Tom Harrell on trumpet/flugelhorn and Joe Lovano on tenor saxophone and features Jack DeJohnette in blazing form on drums. The tunes are memorable enough, with Thinking Out Loud being my personal favorite, and the whole set makes a very pleasing set of Swallow originals. Ballads & blues, latin based songs, everything FLOWS with everyone playing with enormous joy and ENERGY. The sounds of Tom Harrell and Joe Lovano mix beautifully, Mulgrew Miller shows off his considerable talents as well and Jack DeJohnette makes his pleasure in playing on this record heard. So if you like delightful quintet playing, with good original music and if you are ready for some dynamic drumming, don't hesitate and buy this cd! Make sure your hifi is up to standard, because that is what this music requires, too.
