Welcome reissue for this always in demand, seminal jazz fusion album, the sparsity and lo-fi nature of the recording adds another layer of atmosphere to an album drenched in suspense, mystery and surprise. The title track has a portentous soundtrack feel to it – bleak and full of drama in equal measure – it’s also presented on this expanded edition in unreleased form too. The chugging organ and the low key vocal of drummer Leonard King on ‘Creative Musicians’ help set up what is a jazz dance classic, the fierce latin of ‘Cheeba’ sees the band throwing everything into the pot while the bustling ‘Help Me Get Away’ is a bustling guitar and percussion lead dancer. The alternate take of ‘Saturday Night Special’ is more sparse and stripped back but great to hear. Fine album with lots more to discover within – a must for funk, fusion and soundtrack fans.
