MUSIC REVIEW BY George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

The Electric Squeezebox Orchestra is a California based band, and on this album has trumpeter Erik Jekabson and baris saxist Charlie Gurke supplying most of the material. The charts are clever and modern, with chirping horns and guitar teaming with floating flutes on "Gualala" or charging with John Santos' Latin percussion on the extroverted "Jungle Rumble" with vibrant solos by by Darren Johnston/tp and, Marcus Stephens/ts . Gurke's "The Captain" has warm brass floating over the percussion while "A.N.I.F" is as sleek as chrome fins on a 61 Chevy. Trumpeter Doug Morton's arrangement of McCoy Tyner's "Senor Carlos" is filled with a scintillating groove, with his own horn searing through the rivulet. Percolating sounds.
