Album Review

Charismatic trumpeter joined by some big name vocalists. Some tracks are Theo highlighted against a competent background band. Lots of energy here, accessible to even those outside the jivin' hepcats.

1. ** (3:08) Fun little horn line, supported by drums, bass, piano. About 25 s silence end of track.
2. *** (2:01) Pensive, stream-of-consciousness trumpet solo
3. ***** (5:37) Very Funky, full brass hits. Mean guitar, organ, tight drums, jazzy trumpet.
4. *** (6:14) Fast, almost salsa.
5. **** (3:23) Little on the funky side. Organ. Very dynamic.
6. **** (4:43) Dreamy, upbeat. Great horn background.
7. **** (5:31) Groovy. First lyrics. Love-drenched. Interesting stereo mix alternates sound left to right.
8. *** (6:37) Slow. Smooth jazz. Buzzing high hat.
9. *** (4:34) Frantic, strange meter. Fast. Jumpy piano dance. Lots of non-harmonics (experimental?)
10. ***** (4:53) Upbeat. Muted trump a good touch. Hargrove's vocal performance is on point. Suddenly hits a fun, funky jam at the end with banter voices sample.
11. *** (3:23) Very smooth, lovely, jazzy slow dance. Female vocals 2:05.
12. **** (5:30) Fast, driving. Fun, improvised jazz vocals.
