Keyboardist Mikio Masuda cut plenty of great fusion records in 70s Japan – but this set was recorded in the US, with some very soulful help from a great American lineup!

David Matthews arranged the set, with a bit of a Kudu Records vibe – which means that Mikio's got lead solos on both acoustic and electric piano, amidst tight backings that not only use rhythms from Bernard Purdie on drums, mixed with larger strings – but which also include occasional backing vocals from Lani Groves and Diva Grey!
