"In a Word: Fun!/Review of "Outside Casa""

One thing for sure, Laguna! sounds like they're having a blast on this record and they're bringing us along for the ride.

I'm a big fan of the old style light jazzy artists, Sergio Mendez, Tijuana Brass, etc. Laguna! is in a similar vein. It's not exactly the same, but they have a great loungy, jazzy feel that reminds me of that great old stuff. There's also a hint of 80's dancy jazz music here as well. Especially on track one,"Stop it All" , I'm having a little Basia flashback.

I'm digging Lydia Nor's sort of carefree, joyful vocals. She also wrote the lyrics on all the songs.

This is a nice fun, jazzy record that I think many will enjoy.
