The best kept secret in music


"Musician's Realm"

Although a little wacky, the CD is entertaining and civilized. All songs are original and the album is upbeat and spiced with a horn section comprised of Chris Haugh and Mike Coloney on trumpet and Ryan Haylock on tenor sax. Lead vocals and guitar are handled by Christian Jolly with Eric Henson on percussion, Jon Brown on keyboards and Don Lambing on bass. - Tom Yanno

"The Global Muse"

SCAP is one of those types of bands that delivers their music in that pure and smooth fashion. The music is a great ska sound with a horn section that smokes and a rhythm section that drives it home. In fact, I was truly impressed by the entire band. The musicianship is amazing here. The recording is one of the things that made enjoying this band so easy. I really loved the way that the horns bounced through the left and right channels. The songwriting is pretty good also. Very intelligent songs with a great set of pipes running the show. This music is very hooky and contains just the right amount of upbeat posture that makes every song an experience. This is one of those albums that ska fans will truly enjoy and something that will definitely have to add to their collection. - Michael Allison

"The Red & Black"

This seven-piece outfit plays a very laidback style of ska, much closer to The Toasters or The Specials than newer hybrids such as Less Than Jake. But through the 'Net, listeners can make up their minds whether the Web site title is tongue-in-cheek or not. "WARNING:" the site continues, "This CD may cause involuntary dancing." From the opening track "Unsteady" to numbers such as "Outta Sight, Outta Mind" the seven-piece band plays solid if not amazing music on "Let's Kick This Thing" -- SCAP's second, self-produced CD. It's upbeat and entertaining, and Eric Henson's standout percussion keeps the band moving. Ryan Haylock adds in some soulful tenor sax on the instrumental "What I Need," which adds another layer to the mix. Recorded in a week and a half in Newnan, the CD is definitely a rough cut, but you can't deny the group's obvious talent. The last instrumental jam, "Codename Oatmeal," sounds as if it was recorded and mixed while simultaneously funneling grain alcohol. Overall there is enough energy, talent and humor on "Let's Kick This Thing" to warrant a listen. - Carey Mclaughlin
