I am copy-pasting this from the Progressive Ears forum where Andy Sussman from Frogg Cafe has posted this:
 
Dear Friends,

Happy New Year, we have some exciting news!

Frogg Cafe will begin recording a new studio CD with the original members of the band!

The line-up will be:

Nick Lieto - lead vocals, trumpet, keyboards
Frank Camiola - guitars
Andy Sussman - bass, acoustic guitar
Bill Ayasse - violin, mandolin, vocals
James Guarnieri - drums

Steve Uh, guitarist on Fortunate Observer of Time and The Safenzee Diaries, will be stepping down from the band due to creative differences. We consider Steve a dear friend and wish him success with his new project called Sidecar Agogo:
http://www.myspace.com/sidecaragogo Check it out, it's really good! He plays guitar and fiddle on this project and his band just performed for a packed house in Boston a couple of weeks ago.

Also, we will have many special guests including Jim "Skitty" Mullen on Sax and John Lieto on Trombone. We're planning on having some other people drop by too...more on that later. With Frankie back in the band you can expect some crazy stuff to happen. If you want to see what he's been up to since Creatures (besides changing poop diapers) check out:

The new CD will be released at the end of '08 through our good friends at 10trecords
http://www.10trecords.com/ where you can also find all 5 of our CD releases for sale.

More to come soon as things shape up. See you around!

Best,
Frogg Cafe

Frogg Cafe have a recognizable sound which took me time to get used to. I'm not too fond of the vocals, but there's not too much of it anyways and the music is rewarding and I especially like it when they let go a little from the more tightly structured and contained songs and explore and experiment more.
 
I love all their studio albums so far, with the last two being better as I see it with Fortunate Observer of Time being more focused and less experimental than Creatures (which took me time to digest but today I like it a lot).

Yay new Frogg Cafe album! Approve
 
I like Uh though so I'm a little sad to see him go. But being its the original members maybe this record will bring back their original sound.
 
Thanks for the news. Thumbs%20Up
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive
