Stellar reed work from Azar Lawrence – a player who's best known for his acoustic revival in recent years, but who could play with some excellent electric backings during the 70s! The set's less an electric funk outing than it is a spiritual jazz set, with keyboards and guitar in the mix – beautifully put together by the young Skip Scarborough, with a feel that's very similar to Gary Bartz's work with Larry Mizell!
The two-disc collection features previous albums Precious Memories and Precious Memories Volume II, as well as two previously unreleased songs: “It’s All About Him” and “That’s the Way.” Alan sang “That’s the Way” to his wife, Denise, at their wedding in 1979. “It’s All About Him” was inspired by Denise’s book of the same title. “Inspired by Denise’s strength and ability [in writing her book], I sat down and wrote a song of the same title, hoping to add musically to an already uplifting story,” said Alan.
