This is essentially Zubot and Dawson under the direction of their bass player Andrew Downing, who happens to write quirky, contemporary, acoustic compositions, and who has a knack for arranging. The trumpet and fiddle play a great role here–the centre of attention, in fact–yet they’re never overplayed. The flavours are widespread, but they meet under a unified banner: weird, gypsy-like offbeat rhythms and free jazz. Blow the House Down exemplifies rare classiness in a truly Canadian voice. (Fans of Russ Barenburg or Dawg will enjoy this disc).
