    This album is fantastic! Was pleasantly surprised with it. Funk grooves layered with synths combined with relaxed lounge synth jazz. Feels a bit like a great soundtrack to some random 70’s film. This pressing, in particular, is great. Wide stereo spectrum and great separation.

      An oddball in McCann's discography. After laying down some rhythms with his backing band, McCann then fills in the rest of the 32 tracks with a Fender Rhodes and ARP 2600 making one oddball synth jazz LP. Side 1 is a bit laid back with lots of Rhodes and the 2600 emulating various wind instruments riding over the grooves below. Side 2 is more scattered with some wandering and nice little drum breaks. This record makes me think side 2 of Headhunters or of McCann's label mates Eddie Harris and Phil Moore Jr. Fans of electric keyboard jazz would do well to find themselves a copy of this LP. I give it a 8/10.
