3 stars Trumpetist Ian Carr's -led Nucleus one of latest albums (from late 70-s).From the first listening album's music sounds too lightweight and dated with Miles Davis - style trumpet as main soloing instrument. You will need few more spins to feel it deeper, than you will possibly enjoy this brassy soft fusion.

Even if good played, this album is strange product - out of time and place. Obviously brass sound based, the music has strange vintage atmosphere: it sounds like slightly re-freshed fusion ,played by jazz musicians of early 70-s. You will hardly find there psychedelic traces or any other major progressive rock traces. Plenty of brass, post-bop influences and soft, polished sound.

Album for jazz and brass-fusion fans, still enjoying, but hardly an important progressive fusion release.
