This is Al at his unique, fun, funky and sophisticated best. You sense he and all of the musicians enjoyed this session immensely. Great selection of songs that exude character and individuality. The archetypal West Coast R&B album informed by the jazz that launched his career. Ignore the relatively low rating here on Discogs. To anyone in the know this is an absolute classic.
