Review:
My favorite Jazz Funk record ever. Top choice organ funk with Idris Muhammed & Hubert Laws, engineered by Rudy Van Gelder. Bill Mason was an unknown organ player and this is one of his rare appearences. I also think that this is his only solo LP. He is joined by Hubert Laws, Gary Chandler, Wilbert Longmire, Gordon Edwards, Idris Muhammad and Ron Coleman.
All songs feature screaming organ, tight guitar rhythms and fantastic drumming. I'm really blown away by Hubert Law's flute and sax playing. Tasty! You'll find plenty of sampling oppurtunities, as there are loops, breaks and beats all over. Funk and Jazz fans will like this.

TREMENDOUS album. What a powerful sound.

I have ear a bunch of Acid Jazz albums from this age and with some of this music, but this one is fabulous.

Magical version on "Let´s Stay Toghether".

Mr. Law's is superb in here.

Thnaks for posting this masterpiece.
