Barefoot is a spirited world music group with vocals, percussionists and (when performing in concert) dancers. Most notable among the personnel are violinist Steve Kindler, flutist Sulubika and tenor saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum. Unlike other dance records, this CD uses subtle and sparse rather than ponderous rhythms and employs a large amount of improvising from its many talented members. Each of the nine selections on the release uses different instrumentation and the consistently creative and rather delightful set should even appeal to jazz listeners who generally avoid world music.
