Coyote Poets of the Universe: Unmistakable Evidence

Not sure what to call Unmistable Evidence from Denver, Colorado's Coyote Poets of the Universe, a varied and at times odd amalgam of jazz, ambient, electronic, prog rock, and ethnic Native American elements. It the end, the classification is ultimately not really needed, as the end result is a pretty interesting listening experience. The band is comprised of many players who contribute guitar, kalimba, percussion, harp, koto, dumbek, recorder, bass, violin, fiddle, keyboards, and flute, but led by Denver radio show hosts Andy O'Leary (vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards, percussion) and Gary Hoover (vocals, guitars, keyboards, percussion, programming). Basically a mix of jazzy and ethereal ethnic music and poetry, Unmistakable Evidence is a gentle and calming listen that takes you through many aural scenes and landscapes, like the lush fusion of "Nebraska", the Native American settings of "Sitting in the Dark", and the eerie "Purgatory Avenue". Fans of spoken word poetry over minimalist musical arrangements will probably love the few tracks that feature the poems of O'Leary, as his voice has somewhat of an intoxicating effect that kind of lulls you in while the ambient & jazz passages take hold of you. While there's nothing here on Unmistakable Evidence that's going to bowl you over and give you that "wow" effect, there are plenty of tasty bits (the fusiony bass playing is especially nice throughout) and lush passages that should appeal to fans of jazz, ambient, lite prog rock, and spoken word poetry.
