The Great Balloon Race

“Eerie keyboard swells, and odd-yet-catchy vocal melodies that sound as though these musicians are
very familiar with the more outrageous Real Book Standards”

“A spoonful of gypsy folk, a dash of pyschadelia and a nice big dollop of jazz”

“When a band lays waste to limitation and lets the musical breeze carry them in whatever direction
it may blow, that is when truly magnificent music is created”
