Radiohead's "Everything In Its Right Place" follows the opener, and is a rhythmic two minutes and forty seven seconds of great group interplay that could have proven to be trance-inducing (in a good way), had they not done a fade-out. Phil Sparks' bass grabbed my attention on "Tumbleweed" even before his solo. The title track, at almost ten minutes, is the disc's centerpiece, with some excellent tension in its eastern flavor.
The four (almost) standards are just as compelling as the disc's originals. Coltrane's "India" lets the tenor sax of Rob Davis to step out front. Davis nods to Trane without stooping to imitation in his solo. Burt Bacharach's "The Look of Love" has a straight and sincere approach. The closer of the disc, the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows," is an uptempo take on this under-recorded tune, and is a good choice to end this disc, with the snappy drumming of Matt Jorgensen, the simultaneous weaving lines of the horns, the tasty comping and meaty solo of Searles, and the muscular foundation laid down by Sparks.
