Not long after release of their critically-acclaimed debut Island Gypsy, Dark Chocolate was back in their Big Sur studio with an evolving line up and sound. In this follow-up, Kim Stone (Spyro Gyra, The Rippingtons) on electric and fretless bass and 12-string bajo sexto and Clay Henry (Barefoot) on percussion are joined by Brock Bradford on percussion; Nico Georis on piano; Webber Iago on keyboards; Joseph Lucido on guitar and guitar synth ; Xocoyotzin Moraza on veracruz harp; John Nava on percussion; Mike Shannon on traps; and Aaron Stone on drums and percussion. This world jazz set will inspire spontaneous dance. Alicia Sheek (hip belt) is featured on Hip Talk and Jane Blikert (vocalist) is featured on Your Skin Is Where I Begin.
