Fulton natives Victor and Dana Acker paint a vibrant contemporary jazz picture with "Wigged Out!"

The brothers now call the Boston area home, and the 10-song CD captures the hustle and bustle of Beantown.

Victor takes the main line on guitar; Dana masters the bass. Both compose and share the load on keyboards and percussion.

They deliver great melody and whirling keyboards from the start with "Mixo Schmixo." "The Viper" threads an Ed Sullivan intro and thrill-ride screams with horns that fit in on a big TV variety show. "I Dream of Zeenies" soars into a high and happy zone.

You'd think and hope that a song called "E. Pluribus Zawinul" -- after the late, great keyboardist Joe Zawinul of Weather Report -- would be cutting edge. And thrillingly out-there it is.
