YH!!! One of my fav jazz records. <3 George Duke trio at its freshest and most ambitious. First time he really whipped out the synth and explored its possibilities (thanks to Zappa, who got him both to sing and to play synth, I've read!). Impressive result from a trio, too. Quite diverse record with some solo keys stuff (a more ambient psychedelic track and a almost classical sounding soulful piano piece), some vocal involvement (both lyrical and non-lyrical), some funky jazz fusion bits, and some really fun latin-y stuff with fancy percussion improvisation. Then there's the title composition which to me has a darker prog rock feeling to it, with some non-4/4 beat stuff.

A real journey that never stops mesmerizing, in my experience. It's so clear that the musicians are having real fun when playing together, with both interesting compositions and improvisations.

TT score:
