Picture a Grateful Dead that is a bit tighter and a lot more jazz oriented and you have the Zen Tricksters. The vocals and music on this disc are very much in the mode of the Grateful Dead, but with a very precise approach and a lot of jazz-oriented instrumental breaks. The Zen Tricksters are Jeff Mattson, Rob Barraco, Klyph Black, and Joe Chirco. Barry Sless and Jennifer McCallister join them on the disc.
