Aeroplane Trio is an odd little band and Naranja Ha is an odd little album. But what makes the whole ordeal ever stranger is track two, “Lucky Loonie”. On an album filled with loose-lipped trumpet blurs, hyperactive bowing on a double bass and all around free-flying jazz craziness, how did they think such a conventional sounding pre-bop throwback would fit in? In case you need reminding that the journey can be more fun than the destination, here comes Naranja Ha, straight from Canada’s Drip Audio label, with song titles like “They Came and Took Away Our Kittens” and “Whatever Happened to the Sand People”. A DVD is included, showcasing a 45-minute live performance as well as a making-of short. Generous!
