4 stars This is an excellent contemporary fusion record from a criminally underrated artist. If true fans of jazz+rock connect enough dots, their exploits will eventually lead them to Tribal Tech's duo of guitarist Scott Henderson and bassist Gary Willis. Both of them solo and together explode out of your speakers, and this is Willis' fourth solo outing. This record is on the funk end of the fusion spectrum. There are electronic beats here and there like in some John Scofield albums, but it's obvious on every song this is meant as a collective statement. I'm not a Willis or Tribal Tech freak by any means (I only own Actual Fiction from Willis and a few pretty good discs from Tribal Tech) but like FZ says "You know good stuff when you hear it". This is good stuff, definitely material that can be listened with a few suds a few friends and a smoking grill.
