*** 1/2

What a delightfully different group making delightfully different music. On a program of all-original compositions, the guys deliver a very entertaining album. There are some lovely, swinging and infectious swing and blues tunes, as well as some really pretty and infectious numbers, with clever titles.

There's a terrific sense of fun here in the music-making of steel-string and classical acoustic guitarist Bobby E., chromatic and diatonic harmonica player Clint Hoover, bassist Jim Chenoweth and, on some tunes, percussionist Mac Santiago. Each is a fine player, but Hoover stands out, ranking right up there in the small fraternity of harmonica players (Jean "Toots" Thielemans, Hendrik Meurkens, Howard Levy). He's especially impressive on his own Tonguin' Groove.
