This CD is very difficult to describe. Other than saying that it's a thoroughly enjoyable listen throughout, there are no easily accessible descriptions that peg the CD as a whole. Nevertheless. "Condition Red" has been described as the highlight of the CD. This worried me. It was the first track I heard and I was not overly enchanted. It's got more of a dance groove than I prefer and I was worried that the rest of the CD would be more of the same, only not quite as good. I needn't have worried, as the rest of the CD excellently interprets jazz themes in an acid environment. Simon Richmond, in his Palm Skin Productions persona, proves himself more than capable of grabbing an image and evoking it remarkably well. This is particularly evident in his triumvirate "How the West Was Won," "Osaka," and "Trouble Rides a Fast Horse." "Meantime" is disturbingly haunting, and the closer, "Beethoven Street," shows Richmond's ability to combine jazz and classical elements. This is not a cheap CD, but if you're interested in hearing excellently crafted acid jazz, it is well worth the expense.
