With a new chapter already demolishing Fandango records, there is bound to be a plethora of Star Wars merchandise that will monopolize store shelves. However, some of the most interesting stuff are the unofficial products on the fringe, such as Live! From the Cantina: A Star Wars Jazz Tribute, a charming and sharply rendered homage to John Williams' indelible soundtracks. This is no ordinary tweaking; the Andrew Allen Trio take the original compositions and swing for the moon, often hitting a grand slam.

Allen's ambitions are immediately evident on "Luke's Theme," stripping the introspective, melancholy tones of Williams' version for something familiar yet dramatically different. Brad Esau's soothing saxophone recaptures the easily recognizable melody but Allen shoots for a '60s vibe with his organ, reaching the twilight zone of psychedelic lounge music. As Allen is lost in an otherworldly groove, Esau and drummer Truman House are let off the chain. Esau's sax is smoking while House's drums stutter with wild abandon.

The target audience for this album will be, of course, Star Wars buffs; however, the tight chemistry between the musicians will reel in serious fans of the genre. The fiery saxophone and crashing drums of "Tie Fighter Attack" will pummel even the most exuberant of serious jazz groups. There is much to love here, one of the most original and inventive releases of the year. Highly recommended. ~by Stacey Zering
