AllMusic Review by

In Mimosa, Doctor Baby Elmo arranged classical pieces for marimba, acoustic guitar, and harp. On this solo outing, such recognizable melodies deliquesce, or melt away, to reveal more organic, ambient original compositions. These sonorous compositions feature wood and steel marimba with bass, cello, kit drums, and other percussion. The effect is cinematic, as if he created this music for a film score. The mood-setting arrangements are ready for slow landscape pans and snatches of saxophone jazz take us suddenly inside for a change of scene.
