Out In Between (76 minutes)
Is it jazz? Is it rock? Is it electronic? Who knows, who cares. These tunes don't fit into a nice genre as they tend to fall inbetween categories and are often on the more "out" side of things. Though they are "out", and probably won't be heard on a dance floor anytime soon, they certainly do groove. Out Groove?
