Afuche - "Th Sq'd (Excerpt #2)" - Full Length = 5:03

Curtis Hasselbring - "Make Anchor Babies (Excerpt #1)" - Full Length = 6:53

Martial-sounding drums drive visceral, rhythmic brass riffs before things give way to a freewheeling aural exploration that finds trombone, sax, and guitar going from graceful to guttural and back again. [Tempo: no fixed tempo]

Curtis Hasselbring - "Stereo Jack's, Bluegrass J's (Excerpt #1)" - Full Length = 4:32

Sax and trombone lines leap around, across, and between each other in an open-ended musical conversation, while guitar, vibes, and rhythm section subtly distort time and space all around them. [Tempo: no fixed tempo]

Positive Catastrophe - "It's Eternally (Excerpt #1)" - full track= 4:42

Low-toned, elegiac brass introduces a moody, atmospheric track led by a light-voiced female vocalist’s melodically adventurous peregrinations. [Tempo: no fixed tempo]

Positive Catastrophe - "Debruhoe Three (Excerpt #1)" - full track= 3:25

What starts out as a sort of funhouse mirror image of conventional big-band dynamics gradually morphs into a braying, bleating, blowout, in both the figurative and literal senses. [Tempo: Mid-tempo]
