The frenetic [LP] 'Steps in the wrong Direction' is filled with energy and the combination of saxaphone and distinctive 'hang' percussion is delivered with presence and a very believable sence of delay.
The lower registers are excellent from the outset. The Hana manages to deliver power and impact without loosing fine detail or overpowering the upper registers.... with an appealing feeling of drive and snap that works well with Hana's superb tonality and richness.
The ML is able to strike the happy balance between being energetic and and lively, while avoiding listening fatigue.
.... its considerable charms take very little time to grow on you.
