Killer Jazz Crusaders material! The record captures the group at a perfect time – a point when they were breaking past the tighter shorter formula of earlier material, and moving into a slightly more spiritual conception – yet one that still had a hard swing and a deeply soulful vibe! The record’s a prime example of the never-ending energy held by the band – near-perfect on every track, and played with a sense of creative expression that easily puts them at the top of the soul jazz scene in the late 60s! Titles include “Night Theme”, “Air Waves”, “Uh Huh”, “Watts Happening”, and “Ice Water”. (Long Out of Print.)
Personnel: Wilton Felder (tenor saxophone); Wayne Henderson (trombone); Joe Sample (piano); Buster Williams (bass); Stix Hooper (drums).
