Night Mowing, SAM's 2007 release features more Instrumental Fusion using elements of jazz, progressive rock, and spontaneous creativity to weave melodic, exotic, on-the-edge music. All tracks were recorded live in the studio except for Emergence and Sweet Spot which have some layered overdubs.
Night Mowing has the same lineup as the preceding CD, "Fully Functional." The project moves ahead in good ways. This time around the edgier performances have a more matured grip on the dynamics, and the slower tracks have greater atmosphere. Night Mowing clearly has SAM's most polished overall sound yet as well as widened musical depth and diversity.
