A great batch of soulful fusion tracks from The Brecker Brothers recorded back before they got too cheesy! The album features the twin horns of Randy & Michael Brecker, along with alto by David Sanborn, keyboards by Don Grolnick, and guitar by Steve Khan but one of the things that really makes the album great is the vocal arrangements, which were handled by Luther Vandross, who also sung on the album along with Patti Austin. The set’s got a great soulful feel with some wonderful mellow groovers that have a sweet 70s sound.
