This playful disc shows (for anyone who wasn't around when Holman's last release came out, nine years back) Bob Holman to be an acolyte of Ken Nordine's word jazz, never missing an opportunity to jump on a word's double or triple meaning and layering his deeply lighthearted musings over Vito Ricci's simple yet clever accompaniment. It's a collision of dance and poetry, intellect and raw. Bob Holman is still ALL NEW. ALL THE TIME. and Vito Ricci's music soars, roars.
