E-piano, bass and drums provide a light, groovy carpet of obstinatos for the lyric excursions of trumpet, saxophone and flute. The mood is breezy and absorbing, the rhythms are often veined of South-American or Indian suggestions. The shadow of Dave Brubeck's "Time Out" towers specially over the longest track, "Paparoncino" and its compound meters. Its southern-Italian folkloric accents and the funambolic violin solo contribute in making it a very accomplished piece.
