Editor's note: this is a moody romp through the horn and percussion section that culminates more in the frenetic sound department than it does in actual music. It actually seems like some of the sounds are clashing in a way that it's more a pastiche than a collected whole. Still I like it a lot. It's colorful, loud and artfully done.
