2 stars That this album has won the 6th Annual Independent Music Award for Best Jam Album shows why awards are not to be taken seriously. Also, that the music business remains badly compromised for no good reason.

Firstly, this is not a Jam album at all, but a mix of dated Funk. Disco(!) a slight touch of Indian elements alongside the rare stretching out. But it's performed confidently, nevertheless.

Many great artists (John McLaughlin, Stanley Clarke, Billy Cobham and the very Miles Davis along some others) have "strayed" from the path before. The difference is that they didn't receive an award for that - and this album shouldn't have, either.

A great disappointment and a prime contender for a de-listing on PA, if a blacklist of individual albums were to be introduced. It barely fits the category of "Collectors/fans only".
