4 stars This short album is a live recording of sax player Jilian Julien and his band of horns and drums. The recording quality is a bit choppy, but the music more than makes up for it. I can't wait to hear what this band can do in a studio.

The songs are all rhythmically based, with the horns playing sort of in a marching band style. Except what they play would never be heard from a marching band. Wild leads, that sound similar to Ian Underwood's solos with Uncle Meat era Mothers Of Invention, fly over electronically treated trumpets, saxes and tubas. The result is like nothing I've ever heard before.

But I love it!
