Out to Lunch, as they develop many interesting moods and textures throughout the piece. The dynamic nature of the music and the musicians is displayed well in “Nosey Parker” where a thoughtful sunrise type melody gives way to spears of trumpet across the other instruments. Delicacy is apparent in “Shuffle off this Mortal Coil” with soft spoken trumpet and vibes giving way to a brighter pace with Dingman leading the way accompanied by a strong drume pulse. Eisenstadt shifts the mood and pace constantly, dictating the nature and feel of the music. This was a well done and thoughtful album Eisenstadt gives much room for his sidemen to shine and contribute to a concrete group sound. Canada Day III - amazon.com
