Wasteland Jazz Ensemble: S/T

Read "S/T" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Some releases should come with a warning label. We are not talking about Tipper Gore (remember her?) Parents' Music Resource Center (PMRC) stickers warning of the dangers of ”Raising PG Kids in an X-Rated Society" of the late 1980s. No, the alert that should be attached to S/T by the Wasteland Jazz Ensemble might read something like “secure all sharp objects and nail down anything that could be blown away."
