Here's a nice opportunity for an Urbie Green fan. "The Fox" on CTI 7070 is a departure for Green as this
album almost borders on fusion. Here's what AMG had to say about it:
Smooth and silky jazz funk from trombonist Urbie Green a record that's much more in a mainstream R&B
fusion mode than his earlier work yet also arranged by David Matthews in a soulful style that still keeps
things pretty real on the best cuts! The group's a good one for the mellow groove of the material and
includes Mike Mainieri on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, Jeremy Steig on flute, and Toots Thielemans
laying down a bit of harmonica all kicking back in classic 70s CTI styles.
