“Masterful. Fresh, evocative material presented by talented musicians...this is deep musical history, understood and played at the gene level. What holds all this rich, international (“sqworld” music) and original material together is the intriguing voice of Caridwen and the players’ understanding of the role of each instrument – true ensemble playing at its best. “Beatrice’s Waltz” by Spatz is a beautifully imagined tune; “Tango Tenebre” by Keenan adds a South American flavor; and Caridwen Irvine-Spatz contributes “Miles and Miles,” which could have been written 60 years ago and played by Bob Wills. Keenan’s “Big Timber” is a very funny take on a lumber song. The album was beautifully recorded at Rosenberg’s The Schtood in Portland, Ore. Good, concise liner notes by Greg Spatz. I’ve had this playing in my house in heavy rotation, and I’m still hearing new things that surprise and delight. ”
