I second that about Gimac123's misguided comment. I think the brother more than did his time and was not at all following McGriff. That comment is just very off, and not informed. The albums mentioned by McGriff are great, but more simplistic harder funk leaning if that is what you are after. This is more complex orchestration, with cool effects, and a bit of world sound like some of the fusion/space jazz stuff happening the few previous years. Aptly named Sophisticated Funk. Just listen to that great effect on the bass, and all the nice phaser making it smooth dopeness. Ooo.

Crying out for a good remastered CD re-issue, shame this such a good album still no CD in 2018!

Don't agree with Gimac123 below...think this is one of the best funky, jazzy, synthy LPs of the '70s.

OK album with a few nice tracks, light jazz funk. He's trying to be Jimmy McGriff who has no equals with this type of 70's, Hammond type jazz/funk, but worth buying for the album cover alone.

if you like it, check out the following albums by Jimmy McGriff, Soul Sugar, Groove Grease & Electric Funk, much better.
