The music floats somewhere between contemporary Jazz and Jazz-Rock, although no electric, especially guitar, instruments (except for a bit of Wurlitzer piano) are employed. The compositions are pretty solid, diverse but focused, which makes this album a great improvement in comparison to its predecessor.
Sequin does not solo extensively, which is fine sine he is not the strongest instrumentalist in his group, leaving the lead to other soloists. The rhythm section is very good, especially Alarie, who plays some exceptional funky beats and gives the entire music a kick.
Overall this is quite an enjoyable piece of music, not ambitious and groundbreaking in any respect, but providing solid, entertaining music which can be enjoyed by a wide scope of Jazz listeners. With nice compositions and skillful arrangements this is definitely worth checking out.
