Recorded at Bob Cohen Recording Studios, Philadelphia, PA in 1978

Label: Kenya Records [DM 84834] LP 1978; SHOUT! Productions [SHOUT-248] CD (RE, RM, Jp) 2013
Genre: Soul Jazz, Modal Music

A very hip group from the 70s Philly scene – a jazz combo who've got a soulful swing and a wonderfully lyrical feel! The record has a bit of vocals, but really just added in as flavoring for the quartet's excellent instrumental interplay – a blend of tenor and flute with piano, bass, and drums that steps out wonderfully – often with a bit of a Strata East sort of vibe, especially on the longer, more searching tracks! The groove is way deeper than you might guess from the cover, or the monotone look of the set – and the set's one of those rare 70s nuggets from a small label that has more surprise and imagination than most big label jazz sets of the time. Titles include "Marionette", "Bill's Samba", "Kenya's Horizon", and the excellent "The Downer".
