Organic, atmospheric grooves take center stage on world music artist N. Scott Robinson's second CD as leader. Robinson is a talented percussionist who's worked with the likes of Benny Carter, Glen Velez, and John Cage. He brings all of this experience to bear on Things That Happen Fast. Most of Robinson's compositions grow out of the beats he creates on various exotic hand drums. Often, these instruments imply a harmonic center from which a melody is derived. Trumpeter Joe Kaminsky adds a jazz flair to many tracks utilizing a pocket trumpet and kudu horn.
