"Take, for instance, the disc's opening track, "Regatta."  "James, a Providence-born singer-songwriter and self-taught ax-player, puts on his bee-bop hat and sings "so get brave on me now."  And Rune has every reason to get brave now.  with an original repertoire including mellow groove tunes such as "Slow Down" the sky seems the limit, should they keep the pro-power brokers at Allikats steering the ship.  "Slow Down," though benefiting from a strong injection of Celtic fiddle, has an undercurrent of Jazz beckoning.  If "Regatta" reminds of an Addison Groove Project song, the Boston-based sax-driven Funk band that periodically packs Lupo's as the Strand, then "Slow Down: has an early G.
