Don’t Mess with the Dragon

2007-01-30

These guys couldn’t have come out with a better followup release to their 2004 studio release Street Signs. Don’t Mess… is a mature, easy-to-hear release that will get anyone dancing on the first listen. Upon further examination however, complications unfold evidencing the groups creativity. Some hip-hop and turntablism show the niche they are dropping into---they’ve been touring with some premier jazz/hip hop/jam band/world groups and the end result in the diversity of this release draws all of these genres together—a good mix but still strongly Latin. See also CUT CHEMIST in the WYCE library, an integral founding member of this group, twelve years ago. -Pete
