Mizell bros./Hancock/Crusaders jazz fusion kinda thang goin on here...not "disco" in any way shape or form. A star-packed jam sesh...Earth Tones is a classic of the genre.

Anyway, there's a reason why this record is so popular.... Yet again: it doesn't have to be rare groove to be amazing. A dollar bin special if there ever was one.

A good solid album from the very early days of disco. Fusion had just begun to incorporate disco rhythms around this time. There's just a nice earthy funk/disco sound to this music that I find very appealing. It's certainly a lot less poppy than Grover Washington's later albums.
