Hammond organ maestro Bill Mason recorded his only solo album for Eastbound Records in 1972. It features Idris Muhammad on drums, guitarist Wilbert Longmire, trumpeter Gary Chandler and Hubert Laws on sax/ flute. The title song is a funky Soul Jazz workout. There are some gritty bluesy pieces like ‘Now Run And Tell That’ and ‘Stone’. ‘Mister Jay’ is a jazzy groove laden number that concludes a fine Soul Jazz set, whose only failing is its brevity.
