Review:
2 of the greatest forces in funky jazz fusion team up on this nice little set from 1980. By this point, both Ayers and Henderson had emerged to become some of the most influential producers/arrangers in the jazz-funk world, and although each of them had their own unique style, the record brings the pair together nicely by switching the focus track to track between the styles. Some cuts have a much more uptempo funk groove — ala Henderson — and others retain Ayers’ smooth mellow groove from the late 70s. We’re a bit more partial to these latter tracks, and they include “Weekend Lover”, “Thank You Thank You”, “Can You Dance”, “It Ain’t Your Sign, It’s Your Mind”, and “Million Dollar Baby”
