Chicago Underground Duo- Boca Negra

I've been a fan of the Chicago Underground Duo at least since their seminal album Synesthesia from 2000...This newest album, Boca Negra took me by surprise because this is their first release since 2002 or so... What I loved about it is how comfortable the band was in spanning the genres of jazz, experimental electronic, indie rock and 70's progressive rock without missing a beat.

Here is a great review by Chris May from www.allaboutjazz.com

If you're not familiar with the group, this is a stripped down You Tube clip of the duo with just trumpet and drums... No electronics or vibraphones.
