DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA / Pandora's Piñata [2012]

After two successfully executed albums I was afraid Diablo Swing Orchestra might start to wear thin in the creative department but still excel in musicianship.  I was wrong.
2012's Pandora's Piñata is by far their best album to date.  They've perfected the balance of creativity and technicality while still remaining gracefully melodic and catchy.  The colorful tapestry of tones and textures on this album are simply outstanding compared to previous efforts.  A truly amazing album that's got something different around each corner turned.
