Track A1 is about as good as jazz-funk gets. Really love the incredibly funky Ron Carter bass line. Stellar solos from both Hubbard and Benson. Tracks A2 and B1 are forgettable which is why this is rated down from 5/5. Have always loved the packaging of these earlier CTI releases (up until 1973 or so). Nice heavyweight laminated gatefold jackets with inspiring cover artwork. Also some fantastic music intermixed in those releases. Certainly some that stand up to the best recordings Blue Note or some of the other more collectible jazz labels were doing around the time although tending to tighter arrangements
