Summer Love and A Hot Day Today are kind of soft, but the rest of this LP is really consistent. I'm not huge into jazz horns (or lyrics w/ Jazz funk), but they are used sparingly and when used are tastefully arranged. If you are willing to maintain jazz funk in your collection, this is as good a bet as any. PS the only D. Byrd jazz funk in my collection that has survived multiple purges is Ethiopian Knights if that provides you any more insight as to if you will like this LP or not.
