Pandora's Box Review

***1/2 (Three and 1/2 stars)

'These nine musicians, offering all original tunes on their fifth album, might be graduates of Ken Kesey's Acid Tests of the mid-'60s who have been transported across time to the present. Along the way, they picked up influences ranging from globalists Paul Horn and Oregon to adventurous rock bands It's A Beautiful Day and Joy of Cooking to Ken Nordine's word-jazz. Keeping listeners off guard, the Denver-based Coyote Poets loosely fit the contemporary jam-band mold even as "Blood and Bones" and "Quittin' Time" rumble with a blues heft unattainable to many conventional blues bands.'

What's in a name? Coyote Poets of the Universe was put together by a group of poets and musicians with a goal of bringing spoken word in to the rock world, but with the sense of humor and outlook of the 'trickster' - the coyote.

Since the dawn of the 21st century the Denver, Colorado, based Coyote Poets have been creating an exciting and emotional art form and a unique concert experience featuring outstanding musicianship and award winning poets. Instrumentation includes: guitars, violin, dobro, fretless bass, flutes, oboe, clarinet, English horn, and drums.

Our music has received worldwide airplay on hundreds of broadcast, Internet, Satellite/Cable, NewAge, NPR, Jazz and CMJ stations, and critical acclaim in publications as diverse as Downbeat, JazzTimes, The Denver Post, Cadence, Progression Magazine, and Tandem / Corriere Canadese as well as,, O'S and other web sites, and enthusiastic comparisons to artists as diverse as Ken Nordine, Frank Zappa, Massive Attack, Rickie Lee Jones, Neko Case, The National, It's A Beautiful Day, Joy of Cooking and Gogol Bordello.
