Throughout, the band offers generous doses of peaks, valleys and sharp dialogue while Tabbal often serves as the colorist whether performing on vibes, percussion or maintaining the pulse. The musicians often converge while sustaining quaint melodies, gleeful unison choruses and unaffected motifs along with highly emotional interludes that bespeak grit and fierce determination. Simply put, More Cutouts is a pleasant and somewhat engrossing set from a group of esteemed artists who were in fine form during these predominately affable yet at times piercing performances. * * * 1/2
