This is a contemporary jazz release of all original compositions, a few of which could be categorized as bop ("Little Bit"), and some of which could be called smooth ("MM&D" and "Podunk"). Some of it can have a little soul ("K-Funk" and "Zone Seven") and some can have a nice groove ("Totem Dance" and "Get In Line"). There is nothing spectacular here. It is capably performed versions of uncomplicated, adequately-written pieces. Rebecca Ruth
