jic Except for the first track (and some moments in others) it's more post-bop than post-hardcore, and most of it sounds like it could have been recorded any time in the last 50 years. But none of that stops it from being a very good jazz album of its type. If there is a volume 2, I just hope that it gives us something a little more distinctive. Favorite track: House of Smoke.
