4 stars First Michal Urbaniak album, which was available in US as well. Excellent fusion of its time, recorded in Germany with team of skilled Polish musicians.

Urbaniak plays sax, but his main instrument is for sure violin. Music there is on the level of jazz fusion leaders from mid 70-s. Compositions are very vital, bright, melting Eastern European emotive melodies with light funk. Michal's violin sound often similar to Jean Luc Ponty's , and all music is in a vein of Weather Report or RTF.

Fresh, enough original if a bit lightweight, jazz fusion record from golden genre era. Very recommended for vintage jazz fusion fans.
