The band swings like mad on this one! Nice fat arrangements with just four horns, Henry Boozier, Tom McIntosh (who wrote them), Jimmy Heath, and Tate Houston.

This is like listening to a really good pop record, only without the annoying LCD accommodations. Good tunes (Hello Roland Alexander & Charles Davis!) unexpected production appearance by Russell Jacquet, and oh look Gold Star Studios. So it IS like a really good pop record, now we can have an allowable # of degrees of separation between Mingus & Cher! How many would that be, 4? IMingus - Illinois/Russell - Gold Star - Cher, right?

I had bought a pretty plowed LP of this back in the 70s, remember liking a lot, playing it a few times, and then putting it away, glad to know THAT happened, etc.. Got this OJC god knows when, one of those file-away-until purchases, never opened it until today. Well, it's still good, and now all the scratches are gone. Win!

Speaker Corner Records. Sound is rich... A little harsh sometimes.

Can't compare this to "a really good pop record" and/or Cher. Don't listen to that kind of music. I just would call it a really good jazz record.

"aggressive music of rhythmic amplification" says Mr. Litweitler, in the liners. Indeed it is.

It is also sublimely conversational. Very interesting to hear Walter Booker get in between Higgins/Walton/Mobley and add his own thing without distracting from theirs.

Amazing how there are no horns or hands or fingers on this record, just rhythmic sounds that come in and out of each other, any one of them never blocking any of the others.
