3 stars The first epic track, "Big Swifty", lasts nearly 18 minutes; the first 13 minutes consist in some kind of loaded instrumental free jazz, full of a brass sounds and guitars. A noticeable thing is the lack of melody and structure: everything seems improvised. Passed the 13th minute, there are some interesting melodic horns arrangements, but it only lasts about 2 minutes. The Side 2 is a bit better: The track "Your mouth" is as improvised as the side one. The second part of "It Just Might Be a One-Shot Deal" is very good. The final track "Waka/jawaka", has good beginning and end, as reveal the structured & melodic horns arrangements: it gives a Latino winning ambience. But the keyboards and guitar solos in the middle are too long and seem to go nowhere.

Raing: 3.5 stars
