"This is the master in his element, surrounded by people who love his talent and in the air of his milieu - the place from which he does most of the great work. These days Dallas has at least a few world class musicians garnering the highest praise. Earl Harvin and Polyphonic Spree come instantly to mind.Earl Harvin's playing is quite simply magical. He turns sticks into aural-pleasure inducing wands that hypnotize before bringing you to higher and higher states of bliss. Some find themselves keeping tabs on their own consciousness, making sure they are not dreaming or have died and gone to heaven. One savors the moments when he's really rocking and then the moments when he brings subtlety and tender taps that soothe nerves.Gypsy Tea Room is a dark, candlelit environment that reminds some of a 19th century French pub or perhaps a modern opium den. It may in fact be one of the last great forms of refuge for those who enjoy smoking while listening - tobacco that is. The curmudgeonly mayor usually changes all that, right? The staff is laid back and the acoustics are nice, which makes for a relaxed place in which to fall into happiness. Perfect for the calisthenic masterwork of Harvin.Do yourself a favor. Kick back with your favorite Cabernet and sink your neurons into this musical brilliance. Your soul will reap the benefits for hours..."
