This obscure LP is as notable for some late-period playing by trumpeter Richard Williams as it is for the solos of tenor saxophonist Frank Foster. With flutist Artie Webb, guitarist Roland Smith, pianist Harold Mabern, bassist David Lee, drummer Freddie Waits and percussionist Azzedin Weston completing the group, the music (four forgettable originals by Foster, Billy Mitchell and Hale Smith) has some good improvising and shows the influence that funk and, to a lesser extent, fusion had on the modern mainstream jazz of the 1970s.
