Kismet – “Curious Yellow” – [Daisy Records]

Back when John Lurie started the Lounge Lizards, the term we used for that
kind of music was: “Fake Jazz” It wasn???t anything else, but it did not seem to
fit into the categories of jazz. Kismet is doing a new kind of “Fake Jazz”
with a mix of toots, beeps, floaty rhythms, goofy compositions, and an odd
variety of things that aren’t songs, but aren’t anything else. I really liked
it, but there are a lot of very quiet passages that almost sound like silence,
so watch your levels.
