ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The newest album from San Francisco's favorite weirdo-jazz circus act! This time around, the horn section has been expanded to include a honkin' baritone sax and a sprinkling of ridiculous noodling flutes in addtion to tenor sax, trumpet, and clarinet.

The rhythm section has been restyled also, and moves with a more slinky, modern dance sound than before. This is due largely to the addition of a percussionist and the inclusion of more groove-oriented, organic beats. There's still a heavy backbeat, but no solos at all this time - the focus is on melody and overall arrangement.

This is music that will make you chuckle and get your feet moving. Highly recommended for fans of Symon's music, who have waited for years for this moment. We think you'll agree: it was worth the wait!

100 Nights of Passion
Symon Michael does it again. With 100 Nights of Passion, he leads you through an array of tails using a sexy, storytelling saxophone. Like Symon’s New Blue Diamonds last release, (Cramp It Down) 100 Nights is long on being large and breaks the speed limit for backbeat fortitude. Like never before Symon Michael takes you inside his madcap big top and spins you around in his colossus three-ring piano stool until you are too dizzy to find your jacket. Hopefully this CD is a look of things to come from San Francisco number one high jinx champion.

Fun!
The artist's personality and character tease at the listener through his unique "voice" on this album. A good time.

100 Nights of Prozac
Never underestimate the healing power of a catchy horn riff. Somethin' got ya down, Bunky? Hey, try this! “Good Stuff” maybe says a lot of what needs saying here; short, sweet, and like all good stuff, leaves you wanting more. This is where the New Blue Diamonds shine: a bit of humor, a bit of rhythm, and an idea sketched out and gone just as you see the glitter. Only one of the cuts is over 3 minutes, so you don't have much time to ponder deep thoughts, and that's the idea. Get the joke, laugh, and move on.

And the light is a bit dimmer when the mood turns darker; I caught myself thinking that there was just about to be a Keef-like nasty-strum on of the guitar or that a wailing drone was going to turn hypnotic. Like the catchy humor, the mood was gone all too quickly. Unlike the toe-tapping, though, the after-image was a shadow of something missed, rather than a fully realized vision that lingered after the initial flashy exposure.

What? Was there something dark? No, I'm back to bopping with the catchy riffs, yeah!
