The Jazz Mandolin Project: Xenoblast (CD, 56:16); Blue Note Records, 25251, 2000 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Cyberhome: http://www.jazzmandolinproject.com 10 words or less: Surprisingly inventive, energetic, acoustic Jazz Elaboration: I say surprisingly due in part to the unusual trio configuration of Mandolin, Bass and Drums. I expected much more Folk and not so much energy. These guys, while incorporating very small bits of Folk, really stick to more of a Jazz format in their composition style. This is not normally my cuppa but then that is never a qualifying element of good music. There are plenty of good recordings that are not my cuppa and this is one of them. Anyone who likes acoustic Jazz mixed with some Rock elements and unconventionally played Mandolin will enjoy this album. ~ L Perez
