This album is the result of a live show that the three guys did together. They went into the studio the next morning and tried to recreate what they played the previous night. This is the result. I was expecting this to be jazzier, considering the guests. Basically, these are Portastatic songs with a cool background added. The songs are acoustic and mellow with some interesting percussion and the occasional sax wail. Vandermark fans should check out the first and last track. Steve Albini engineered.
