Fabulous Drop is the seventh album from this all star downtown band. This fantastic, extremely high-energy release features leader/saxist George Cartwright, the great dual guitar team of Davey Williams & Chris Cochrane, bassist Ann Rupel & drummer Kenny Wollesen. Great tunes, great playing & a unique sensibility - George mines a unique, truly Southern avant esthetic unlike anything else in new music.

"...one hell of a group..."
– The Wire

"This is seriously good music & the performances are deceptively tight...if you're looking for something with 1st rate musical standards, smart performances, brilliant sonic surprises & nutritious brain food, grab it."
– Memphis Commercial Appeal

"Curlew was founded and has been led by saxophonist George Cartwright (who doubles on alto and tenor) since 1979. Curlew's musicianship is impressive, the nine group originals are concise (only one exceeds 5:35) and the players are not afraid of using melodies, rhythms or conventional harmonies although they often joyfully dispense with the expected in favor of constant chance-taking. A stimulating set."
– AllMusic
