This LP has always been an interesting album to listen to. A nice mixture of styles, although the second side of the LP is a lot more jazzier than the first. Chuck Findley gets in some nice blowing space on "Getting Up" and "You Got It". My favorite tune is the bluesy "The Strip", with a nice trombone solo by David Dahlsten. "La Costa Drive" is a very hip swinger. It is full of expectations and surprises. I would have expected this to be a nice, polite well recorded instrumental album. Well recorded,it is. But it is all original compositions and much jazzier than I would have thought. The cream of LA musicians(Hall Blaine Joe Osborne and Chuck Findley are just a few-guess with it being Daugherty's album Larry Knechtel didn't need to show up for keyboard duty). The short timings also do not give you a clue as how jazzy these pieces are and I suspect that was its shortcoming when it was released-too jazzy for MOR radio and too polished for other formats). Boy,Chuck Findley really gets to shine as an individual here,not the chameleon costume he is usually relegated to wearing. Very reminiscent of Bacharach's A&M work.
