Format: Audio CD
Like the band, who make no secret of their contempt for the Nashville-music industry, controversy surrounds whether this album is country or pop. Certainly this record, with a fully fledged orchestra including the ‘Havana Horns’ and the ‘Nashville String Machine’ has a big sound which falls outside the strict definition of traditional country.
I’ve always been a big admirer of the Mavericks during their early country days and was not surprised when their last album, ‘Music For All Occassions’, was well received by critics. This album represents a natural progression from their earlier work but retains the Maverick latin-american influenced (Tex-Mex) sound.
The sleeve notes are refreshingly different. Each of the four Mavericks are depicted on the front cover, one dressed as a clown, the others holding a megaphone, a meat cleaver and a doll respectively. Old-style photos cover two-thirds of the inlays (with song-titles overlaid along with lyric excerpts from the songs), with modern day pics of the band at work/play on the remaining third.
After seeing them give an impressive live promotion of this album it appears musically the Mavericks can do no wrong. The best track, ‘Dance The Night Away’ went on to become a top-ten cross-over pop hit. The slow burner, ‘Tell Me Why’, and frenetic ‘Save A Prayer’ were also blasted out, leaving the assembled audience with ringing eardrums and a feelgood factor times 10. Apparently the album was recorded live, with musical arrangements worked up in advance before going into the studio.

Trampoline is easily my favorite Mavericks album and this 5.1 surround sound version gives it that extra bounce. As soon as the hit 'Dance the night away' comes dancing out of all five speakers the album just pick you up and carries you along. A masterclass demonstration on just how a well mixed 5.1 DTS version of an album just blows the conventional stereo version away. Why aren't more albums given the 5.1 treatment especially when it's done this well.

The Mavericks certainly don't make it easy for those people who want to fit everyone and everything into neat categories. From the evidence of this set they're not Nashville country though it was recorded there and the expertise of their pickers isn't a million miles away from the more famous ones from that city (as observed by the Loving Spoonful). Nor are they to be considered Alt-country - somehow they've always seemed either too flash or maybe too frivolous, to get into that grouping. Nor are they straight retro though Raoul Malo's respect for Orbison and earlier vocal heroes is worn on his sleeve. Nor are they tex-mex as is sometimes claimed: their sound is totally unlike tejano music - compare it with the Texas Tornadoes for example - but their use of Mexican flourishes bring more to mind a thousand filmic memories of a romantic Mexico which probably never existed. You wouldn't call them a latin band but there are very pronounced latino touches in this set. What the band do, and they do it very well, is entertain with a whole lot of skill and knowledge of a whole range of musical forms that they obviously enjoy playing.

Initial listening suggests that they have moved a bit further away from their early country influences but I'm inclined to see the country aspects as still there but more deeply absorbed into Malo's songs.

"Dance the night away" gets us off to a great start with all the mariachi horns - this one's an absolute pop classic. Track 2, "Tell me Why" has Raoul in pleading mode backed with an even bigger brass section. Then it's more mex with "I should know" with nice pedal steel as well as the horns. A rumbling bass guitar line introduces a bouncy country inflected, "Someone should tell her".

This is that jackpot album the Mavericks were waiting for. You'd be forgiven for not having heard of them, as until Trampoline, they used to be filed under Country & Western. Actually the band is from Miami, they just do their thing in Nashville!
With each successive album (and since I discovered Trampoline, I've bought the rest!) they've gone less C&W, and more mainstream. On this one they've added a great horn section to give a latin flavour, and boy do they have fun!
Raul Malo, their lead singer has one of those voices that's clear as a bell, and soars effortlessly into falsetto as Roy Orbison's did, and Chris Isaak's does now. The musicianship from all is absolutely top class on ballads, and the foot tappers.
You must have heard the hit `Dance the night away' on the radio or TV ... it's the first track on the album, and it gets you within the first few seconds. I just have to dance every time I hear it - and it's definitely one of my desert island discs.

I loved this album when it came out and bought a copy. From there I realised that The Mavericks, whom I had not previously heard of, had a long recording pedigree. Sadly I got into the band shortly before they decided to go their separate ways. Nevertheless, The Mavericks have left us a fine volume of work.

My original copy of Trampoline disappeared somewhere, I know not where; as a result I had not heard the songs for a long while. On a whim, I decided to buy another copy via Amazon and I am so glad that I did as it was like listening to all that music anew!

If you haven heard Trampoline, buy this album, you will love it.
