    Reviews :

    “Barefoot Adventure launches with the eponymous composition. Not surprising at all, given that this is the title track for the documentary. Stylistically though, the arrangement is full of unexpected twists and turns, not all of them embraceable by the true-bred Surf fan. Take, for instance, the downwards spiraling kick-off tone sequence on Bud Shank’s alto saxophone and Carmell Jones’ deliberately off-key trumpet accompaniment: this opening section is clearly rooted in Jazz rather than Surf Rock and even traverses through the whole composition which also sports the archetypical bass billows played by Gary Peacock. This is the sound of a dedicated Jazz combo. However, two particular additions do inject that Surf feeling after all: the brazen-aqueous duality of Shelly Manne’s beach-infested drums plus clinging cymbals and plinking triangles on the one hand, and Dennis Budimir’s adjacent guitar twangs which are awash with sunlight and rounded off by blue skies on the other hand. With an infinitesimal Yiddish timbre, Barefoot Adventure remains a feast for classic Jazz fans nonetheless.” Ambient Exotica
