Mike Steinel mixes his trumpet and flugelhorn in a velvety way as he blends it with Rosana Eckert's vocals in both wordless and lyric form. The remaining team of Pat Coil/B3-p, Carl Hillman/b and Steve Barnes/dr show flexibility and rich pulses throughout, particularly with Coil at the Hammond. With the Leslies, voic e and horn prance over the lovely "Haitian Banana Run" and the soulful "Basement Waltz #12."
With everyone on the acoustic trail, Steinel yearns on the modal "Vitav" with Eckert delivering poignant words, while "Whispered Tear" has horn and lady in an ethereal mood along with Hillman and Coil providing sensitive support. Eckert wisps on the ballad "Who Are These People" while Barnes gets funky on the fun "Beto Junction Breakdown." A great idea for harmonies to form rich moods and fragrances.
