Gato Loco Coconino -- To hear Coconino is to feel what it must have been like in those days when a travelling circus came to your backwater town; suddenly, out of the dust, there is a promise of mystery, pageantry, eroticism and violence. Seduced by the sharp edges of this relentlessly driving 12-piece dance band, you catch glimpses of impossible places, impossible times. "It is rare to hear music that makes you want to dance and whose arrangements are also a marvel of invention" (downtownmusicgallery.com)
