Excellent musicianship and fun lyrics
This group of New York Jazz musicians have created a unique sound that integrates classical training with Jazz rhythms and balances the excellent quality of the musical talent with lighthearted and quirky lyrics. The classical string section (cello and violin) accompanies wind instruments and horns and is rooted with an upright bass that alternates between classical and jazz rhythms. Adding texture and depth to the ensemble are hand drums and percussion, rhythm guitar and accordion. The lyrics (What Happens After You Die) are reminiscent of the Barenaked Ladies. The balance of quirky-fun lyrics and serious musical talent results in music that is both technically excellent and endearing for its idiosyncrasies.
Wonderful, unique style
This is a fantastic album filled with beautifully composed pieces, catchy melodies, and humor. Stand outs are "Should I Wake Up Happy?", and "What Happens After You Die?", and "Black Hole Sun", which is an ingenious remake of the Soundgarden classic in a vaudeville-esque style. And best thing about it- the lead vocalist, Seth Fruiterman, sings it through a blow-horn. It totally works.
