    After assorted releases celebrating Christmas, children's songs and a hybrid of suave stylish attitude wedded to garage rock, The Coctails made this jazz album. The quartet members are multi-instrumentalists who made no secret of their love for jazz on earlier recordings. This time they jump into it whole hog. This is an honest and exuberant set by any measure.
    The Coctails are joined here by jazz players Ken Vandermark on bass clarinet and Hal Russell on saxophones (who died shortly after these recordings were completed, making this the final document of his playing), as well as Poi Dog Pondering's Dave Crawford on trumpet. The ten relatively short pieces celebrate a healthy range of fifties jazz styles, from West Coast cool to Sun Ra hot.
