First listen of what I am sure will be dozens more. What is so impressive about this work is the effortless balance achieved between the two musical fronts. Putting it straight, this not "experimental jazz" like so many others keep trying to do by jamming odd instruments together in hopes of getting a right fit. Rather, this album is the truth of jazz…it accomplishes exactly what music is supposed to. The two sides allow for generous space to exist with ample pump and near perfect timing. The result is glorious fun, significant rhythm and what has turned out to be a triumph of sound, absolutely.
Smart is Sexy
It's another Grammy in the bag. Smart, sophisticated, accessible stuff. After listening, I'm thinking "why hasn't this happened before?" More for the Flecktones fans than the Acoustic Planet gang, but worth it to everyone. Candy!
I was reccomended this album by Rodney Jordan himself at Florida State University, and I cannot dismiss that I absolutely adore this album. Marcus and Bela sound fantastic together.
