Celo’s note:
Original vinyl rip

Jimmy hits a bit of a CTI groove here — working with larger backings from Brad Baker, but still in a style that’s got a heck of a lot of soul, despite the smoothness! There’s plenty of great space for solo work on the set, and Jimmy Ponder is especially nice in the format — hitting some warmly chromatic solos that still have plenty of invention too — and which sound very sweet alongside Jimmy’s work on organ and keyboards. Other soloists include Hank Crawford and Eddie Daniels, and titles include the funky moogy classic “Tapioca”, plus “Outside Looking In”, “Dust Pan”, “Walkin Willie”, “Midnight Boogie”, and “Playland”.
