3 stars well, this is an excellent funk album...

by the year '75 Mr Cobham had already participated in numerous legendary jazz/fusion albums and his own masterpiece "Spectrum". i wouldn't know the historical facts that lead to this change but it is just what the title says: funk music. interestingly enough, Mr Cobham is not the man here. with the exception of "A Funky Kind Of Thing" which is basically a drum solo, and the ender "Moody Modes" which is a jazz/fusion orgy, the rest of the album is funk music mostly based on instruments like sax, trumpet, trombone and congas. the whole mood is really enjoyable and these fellows sound like they really enjoyed its recording. the question for you is if you like funk and for me is how i would rate such a release in this site. the answer for you is that if you do it's a 4-star rate and for me is a 3-star rate adding that it is really, really good but not essential to the average prog fan.
