Of course they've grown and matured even greater over the years, but it's been subtle. When Cuckoo's Nest was released it was such a major shift and upgrade in the Flecktones sound that it got them so recognized within the music industry that a little over 2 years later the Grammy's would acknowledge them for their live album "Live Art".
At Last We Meet Again may be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.

Definitely a great album and a major turning point for the band. Branford Marsalis is a great addition, he (and obviously Bruce as well) really fit in with the guys when he was around. I'd like to hear him try his hand on a few of the newer tunes, plus it would be interesting to see him and Jeff together on the same stage.
