Review: Classic jazz fusion. Drummer Bob Holz creates a soulful groove, dedicating the sound and feel to his late boss Larry Coryell. He mixes and matches his core group with a rotating team of horns, guitars and bassists, including Stanley Clarke (3 & 4) & Randy Brecker (3 & 4). You can put on your listening ears or dancing shoes for this one.
