It may be commercial, but Touchdown is an outstanding example of the late-70s/early-80s fusion sound. The album gathers together a veritable who's who of top-notch session musicians of the time, including well-known players like Ron Carter; Steve Gadd; Gary King; Eric Gale; Hiram Bullock; Mongo Santamaria; Ralph MacDonald; Jon Faddis; Randy Brecker; David Sanborn; Hubert Laws; Idris Muhammad. There're even photos of each of them inside the gatefold cover, a feature pretty much unheard of in this tightly-produced and packaged genre.

Each track has a strong hook; they build upon engaging instrumentation and flawless production that rewards headphone listening. Bob James may have composed all the tracks, but they succeed thru the supremely talented cast of artists assembled. Like everything else, they just don't make em like they used to. Highly recommended.
