Modal and funky jazz album by saxophonist Joe Henderson on Milestone Recordings.
He mixes here latin, funk and modal jazz to get intoa perfect mood, both deep and groovy.
George Duke on Fender Rhodes and Luis Gascaon trumpet are at their best.
Contains a sample of Troublemakers’ Express Way. Probably one of his best album.

This album has trumpeter Luis Gasca featured as a co-star with tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson. Gasca arranged "Tres Palabras" which is played by a 13-piece group (Oscar Brashear takes the trumpet solo) while the other three originals (two by pianist Mark Levine) use either a sextet or a nonet. Henderson is in fine form on these spirited Latinish performances which have also been included on his eight-set Milestone box.
