O’s Notes: This is a collection of both poems and eclectic instrumentals. The later range from funky syncopated jam sessions like “Sunglasses A La Mode” to “Bhangra” which includes vocal chants to give it an Indian/Mid Eastern club groove feel. We were reminded of a theme park ride soundtrack on some of the songs like “Martian Sunset”. The dueling guitars of “Flamenco Porch” add spark in the middle of the set along with the funky horns of “Albuquerque”. Andy O’Leary is the author of the poems, composer of the music along with Gary Hoover. This is an unusual approach that has potential.
