Coyote Poets of The Universe
Square Shaped Records, 2011, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Pop+Jazz
O’s Notes: As the title suggests Pandora’s Box is a collection of many different contemporary pop jazz tunes. They open with a Capella on the title track, add Spanish influence on “Cuando El Ray Nimrod”, and marry vocal harmonies with a funky back beat on “History of the World” including prominent banjo and bass lines. We also enjoyed “Rapp Riff”, the hard blues of “Quittin’ Time” and the cool breezes of “Vermillion Cliffs” especially the crickets! As always, the Coyote Poets deliver an eclectic package.
