ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Coyote Poet stepped out into the newly mown universe
The stars brushed at his wordy coat like tall grasses as he walked.
The beginning had already happened and Coyote Poet knew
His feet were touching a million and a million and a million
Storms of enlightenment blazing over new city skies everywhere.
Meanwhile on a little blue planet in a distant corner of the yard
People looked up to see a bright red orange object in the sky.
Next door neighbor closer than it had been in 60,000 years.
Coyote Poet spoke in an unknown language called music
And somewhere the language took on words and meanings
That only the Martian watchers could understand or care to.
Coyote Poet took on a new form with each poem song...
Some of the forms became clouds and so rained meaning
Into rivers that had been dry in previous chapters.
Other forms included rampaging baritone saxophones
And gypsy guitars orbiting melodies that fed into streams
Of consciousness...
One night before Mars was so close Coyote Poet found
A young boy sleeping in a backyard just hours before dawn.
Seeing into the child's mind Coyote Poet saw Roy Orbison
And Dusty Springfield and Buddy Bolden and Jelly Roll Morton
And Walt Whitman and Jack Kerouac and Mickey Mantle.
These people asked Coyote Poet to give the kid a break.
Walt Whitman told Coyote Poet why the child was asleep
In the yard...Coyote Poet smiled.


...and the cellist wore a fez........

Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap

This is the kind of record you get to make when nobody is looking over your shou
Two long time jazzbos from Denver change the vector of their work once again and come up with something that seems to cross all lines but does it seamlessly.
Sticking with their jazz roots but weaving in the sum product of their travels, like award winning poetry, 50's and 60's vibes and everything else that floats their boat, they create a sonic tapestry that contains all the popular adult buzzword genres, and more. Wild, woolly date that's from the open eared for the open eared.

A unique sound, not just ...reading

And now, for something completely different....
Style: Jazz/world/ambient/spoken word
Sound:*** Composition: *** Musicianship ***1/2 Performance: ***1/2 Total rating: 13/16

And now, for something completely different (in this magazine that's saying something): Coyote Poets comprises multi-instrumentalists Andy O'Leary and Gary Hoover, a duo that combines jazz, ethnic motifs and impressionistic poetry in an artistic stew that at first might seem a bit schizoid.
Things kick off with spacey instrumental backing to an O'Leary penned poem "Creation Myth/The Birth of Siddhartha", then move on to the funky, honkin' sax-led "Sunglasses A La Mode" (including a guitar solo by guest Neil Haverstick). From there, we get more traditional jazz ("Albuquerque"), more poetry over a cool-flowing, organ-fueled melody ("Dreaming of Dusty Springfield"), and visits to various non-descript ethnic ports of call, "Bhangra"(Eastern), "Flamenco Porch"(Latin), "Gobi Tween"(tribal whatever), "Kate's Song(Sunset Over Taos)"(oriental), and "Tower of Babel"(bringin' em all together).
There's more - ambient textures following a sprightly flute solo on "Martian Sunset", plus the poetic ode to New Orleans jazz,"Jambalaya Moon".
Somehow, all these seemingly disparate parts fit together into a fun, entertaining listen. And that's saying something as well.

Glenn Astarita

Instills equal parts jubilance and braininess.
"A Colorado based unit featuring Andy O'Leary's hip poetry on selected tracks. The music skirts the outer realms of world music, and art-rock, amid richly textured sonic dreamscapes. Overall, the band conveys a multifaceted persona throughout an album that instills equal parts jubilance and braininess."

"... part abstract jazz, and part haiku poetry."

D. Oscar Groomes

An unusual approach that has potential
"O's Notes: This is a collection of both poems and eclectic instrumentals. The later range from funky syncopated jam sessions like "Sunglasses A La Mode" to "Bhangra" which includes vocal chants to give it an Indian/Mid Eastern club groove feel. We were reminded of a theme park ride soundtrack on some of the songs like "Martian Sunset". The dueling guitars of "Flamenco Porch" add spark in the middle of the set along with the funky horns of "Albuquerque". Andy O'Leary is the author of the poems, composer of the music along with Gary Hoover. This is an unusual approach that has potential."

Bret Saunders, The Denver Post

A disc firmly committed to its own gregarious eccentricity.
A fusion of ambient, world beat,
other-world beat and, well, fusion itself, this music works best on the vaguely Prime Time-esque "Sunglasses a la Mode" (with microtonal guitarist
Neil Haverstick) and the punchy "Albuquerque." And O'Leary's occasional poetry readings might expand your mind too.
