Ben Havick's second 2006 release Cool Aid is an enterprising swim in the waters of familiar legacy, beckoning a reversal of musical attitudes in the realm of Be-Bop, re-Bop, rip-Bop, and Post Modern Gospel by gently nudging the listeners' ears towards a quiet back street where the mood is kind and the grooves are permanent. Fans of Havick's first 2006 release Help Me Dance will be presently surprised to find a more thematic approach felt on this album, most apparent in the solid bass and drum syncopations and the quiet but focused improvised lines of Havick's sweet sounding hollow body guitar. Again, all compositions are Ben Havick's own, with the album rounding out about ten minutes short of Help Me Dance, making it a clean forty minutes of jazz fantasy. Sit back and dream after midnight with Havick's attempts to create an undiluted document of his muses' suggestions.
