For fans of Joe Farrell's work with the first version of Chick Corea's Return to Forever band and Elvin Jones' trio work on Blue Note, this is a real treat. The album finds Farrell at the peak of his powers during his tenure with CTI records. Although CTI did a lot of big productions, this is a quartet album recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in New Jersey in 1972. The rhythm section is made up of Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Stanley Clarke on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Fans of Miles Davis' early electric work ( such as "Miles in the Sky" or "Filles de Kilimanjaro") will enjoy this, as will anyone who enjoys fusion in its early experimental phase when funky backbeats were evenly mixed with Coltranesque modal patterns.
