"If you have ever watched a great film and knew the whole time you were watching, that you were going to watch it over and over again, because you would have to in order to catch every color, nuance and message of the story, then you will know that same feeling when you listen to Coyote Poets of The Universe.  Outstanding!"  Lightnin Jones, artist.

'These nine musicians, offering all original tunes on their fifth album, might be graduates of Ken Kesey's Acid Tests of the mid-'60s who have been transported
across time to the present. 

Along the way, they picked up influences ranging from globalists Paul Horn and Oregon to adventurous rock bands It's A Beautiful Day and Joy of Cooking to Ken Nordine's Word-Jazz.
Keeping listeners off guard, the Denver-based Coyote Poets loosely fit the contemporary jam-band mold even as "Blood and Bones" and "Quittin' Time"
rumble with a blues heft unattainable to many conventional blues bands.'

Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat Magazine


Nominated for the Zone Music Reporter's Best Chill/Groove Album for their 5th release “Pandora's Box.”
