This new album is a very seventies/late sixties sounding album. Post-Coltrane bop-music with older and younger musicians side to side. It reminds a bit of The Cookers (an all-star post-bop outfit with some great albums). The drumming of Lenny White is really restrained and nothing like what he does in Return to Forever. Great to hear Binker Golding guesting on this album.

The production of this album is very retro, and the compositions and solos are really great. It almost sounds like a lost post-bop-album than as a modern jazz-record, wich exactly what I like.

You can easily buy this album through Gearbox records (digital or physical) wich is great, because you can support the artists better, than just stream the album.
