MUSIC REVIEW BY Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times, February 2, 2003

This is not only one of the finest albums produced by Seattle's Origin Records, it's one of the most satisfying, well-made and seductive recordings currently in rotation in my house. The world-jazz mood is dark and earthy, like flamenco and electric Miles with minor keys, throbbing bass lines and unusual meters.

Marc Seales' Fender Rhodes provides a slinky, silken cushion. Saxophonists Mark Taylor (alto) and Rob Davis (tenor) take the lead lines, Phil Sparks plays with Mingus-like conviction and drummer/leader Matt Jorgensen (a partner at Origin) drives the proceedings with multidirectional precision and fire.

The rock-ish "Everything in the Right Place" has a joyous, Dave Holland-like determination. "Tumbleweed" evokes the lonesome, pensive mood its title suggests. A bossa nod to Burt Bacharach, with "The Look of Love," is a nice touch; tackling Coltrane's "India" is a bold move. Nice work!
