In the wake of the loss of Acoustic Alchemy's co-founder Nick Webb, his prior partner, Greg Carmichael, has created a whole new ensemble vibe by collaborating with formerly supporting members of the duo. The biggest differences on this CD is that Carmichael is more open-minded about spontaneous interaction and lays back a bit on the strings so that rich atmospheres can fill the picture. On "The Angel of the South," his and Miles Gilderdales" dark guitar lines snap along over Frank Felix"s rolling samba bass groove and hypnotic percussion fills. It"s a shame Guy Barker"s Latin trumpet doesn"t enter the fray sooner. "The Panama Cat" is a simmering retro-soul blues, with a reflective acoustic easing over a jumpy wah-wah line throughout. The title track"s reggae beat will remind Alchemy fans of the classic "Jamaican Heartbeat," but its moody ambience and occasional hypnotic piano swirls - courtesy of Terry Disley - make it sound like a 3rd Force tune. "Hats of Magic" creeps along coolly with sound effects, a trip-hop groove, and the dreamy interaction of guitar and Snake Davis" sax. For those averse to the exciting changes, "Big Sky Country" is typical, loping Alchemy stuff all the way. Another unique idea is having Steven Jones produce second versions of both that tune and "Trail Blazer" with an all-Nashville cast complete with appropriate steel-guitar, harmonica, dobro, and violin. Webb would be proud of his compadre's ability to move on. -- Jonathan Widran
