Anyway, one thing about Michael is that he ships immediately. I'm always surprised at how fast the stuff gets here on the east coast.
What are their studio records like? They can't be quite like this, though I'm sure they are very good.
Michael, Caleb, and Stu's recommendations sound very good to me. Speaking of taste and expression, I will probably get more Boulou and Elios also. I have been playing the Nuages record daily since I got it two weeks ago. It's my first exposure. Sometimes I just listen to The Man I Love; all 15 minutes of it. While there are lots of very rapid single-note passages, I am not really struck by the speed at all. I think the main reason is the total absence of licks. They also apppear to be playing with absolute abandon. Especially Boulou (I think). It was very liberating for me to hear this. They definitely take advantage of the live format.
