Tin Fish Tango
By Dick Metcalf
Some of the same folks who played on the “Pelican” CD reviewed below played on this one as well… James Singleton on bass & Mark McGrain on trombone, & Tom Fitzpatrick on sax to be specific. It has a much “straighter jazz” orientation than “Pelican”… scope out “Bright Side” to hear what I mean. “No Spill, Spew” features excellent & right-on-time improvisation, & “Big Bhang Theory” takes you right down to what the “core” of jazz is all about! My absolute favorite track was the closer, “Diddlin‘”… high talent & subtle energy displayed on each & every note, with a low & funky groove that satisfies to the max! These guys are tight – have to be to do all 13 tunes without drums… I give them a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, especially for listeners who want a little taste of “different” in their listening experience. “EQ” (energy quotient) rating is 4.97.
