artworkThis is a CD of music from a band of musicians from Roswell, Georgia. Their music is roots rock based, not rockabilly, but more Austin like, though it has its own character. Track 8 is a wonderful instro called "El Baile De La Cobra."

Surf (Instrumental)

What a cool number. The melody line employs middle eastern influences, the percussion is exotic in a semi strip joint reverby way, and there are subtle references to "Waiting For Love" chorus from Eddie Money's "Two Tickets To Paradise" and Duke Ellington's "Caravan." The references are more a hint than a theme, except for the single line directly from "Caravan." This is big and moody, and very enjoyable.
