Wow! What an extreme change of pace... from Klezmer/tuba-led, to a bass-led group in full jazz mode on a debut album that will simply stun your aural appendages... you'll think you're in one of those smokey back-room clubs at 3:00 am as you listen to the beautiful synchronicity of Marcos's bass on tunes like the 6:11 high-energy opener, "I Should Care"... your ears (& your whole body, in fact) will thrill to Marcos's original "Colinas de Santa Maria"... I can tell you (right NOW, folks) that this tune spins at least a couple of times a day on my player. Of the eleven tunes offered up for your jazz listening pleasure, though, it was the 8:39 "Red on Planet Pluto" that got my vote for personal favorite, with "Mitsuru" coming in a (very close) second... the bass solo on this tune is just fantastic, and when the whole group kicks into gear, you've got one of the liveliest songs you've heard (yet) this year (especially Marcos's bass)! I give Marcos & crew a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this excellent debut release.
