High Concept Jazz or just a bunch of wiseguys having fun? A little of each is what we have here, with tracks from 4 different ensembles ranging in size from 3 to 10 players, drawing on a pool of San Diego and Long Beach based players led by reed & keyboardist Michael Friedmann (with Nathan Hubbard from Trummaflora et.al. contributing percussion). The Dropouts are the largest group here, with sort of a space-age Klezmer approach. The smaller subsets explore other realms including electronic effects and chamber jazz. The mostly silly titles don’t clue you in to how grand and intriguing some of these charts are. NO VOCALS.
