EDGE REVIEW: What's up music...
A hypnotic blend of Jazz, R&B, and folk-tinged rock, think Manhattan Transfer meets Al Jarreau. The ten song offering expertly exemplifies RASPIN's sophisticated song craft with such tunes as "Dream" a reflective James Taylor-like number, about embracing the simplicities of life; the poetically written ode to personal destiny. "Somewhere in Time"; a fun Jazz-Pop tribute to the City of Angels called "Busy Sidewalks"; and "We Do What We Do", a tale of unconditional love.
