Cuneiform, 2009, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: The Microscopic Septet is a band that was very popular in the 1980s. They are having a rebirth stimulated with their European tour of 2007 and upon it’s completion recorded Lobster Leaps In. It is a collection of some of the old and some of the lesser-known tracks. Led by Phillip Johnson (sax) they seem to get better with time. The music is jazzy large ensemble blues that rock. They absolutely are having a ball playing and it is contagious! They will again tour in 2009. Watch out for a highly energetic and entertaining experience.
