Recorded and remixed at Regent Sound Studios, New York.

One of Lateef’s funkier albums for Atlantic — and a record that features some great keyboard work from Kenny Barron! The liner notes indicate a current Lateef fascination with rhythm, and it tries to present this fascination in a way that implies a bigger intellectual approach to the music — but heck, this is just some pretty darn nice 70s jazz funk, and Lateef’s angular reed work sounds very nice next to the smoother electric backdrops! Titles include “Hellbound”, “The Improvisers”, “Mystique”, and “Mississippi Mud”.
