5 stars Five stars++ without a doubt!

How can a jazz ensemble can offer a so wonderful trip to somewhere else? Chick Corea had always been IMHO "The" reference for Piano/Keyboard along with Herbie Hancock. I knew several of his works in classical jazz, and when I heard he had also recorded great fusion albums I told myself "good time in prospect!". On the web, I discovered that I already had a vinyl record of them, half forgotten in a corner of my parents' house. When I finally recovered it, the cover art reminded me I had listen to it when I was young. But I wander from the point of this review.

After only a couple of listenings I get flooded by the strenght of this superb music. They succeed in their attempt to produce psychedelic jazz rock, in the mood of the early 70's acid inspired music. No incantations, no real krautrock likeness but a weird ambience, oscillating between cheerfulness and disturbing moments, as an acid trip does (I'm not avowing I have tried out). I won't range over the artistic skill of these musicians, but one thing is sure : they didn't join all together by any chance, they really had a precise idea on what they wanted to play. And final result is one of the best jazz rock album ever (I do ponder my words!).

It's a unique trip that leads you to other lands, a cheap and very accessible travel to unknown. I recommend it strongly to everyone needing a little break, or just looking for astonishing music.
