3 stars One of George Duke's soul-funk album. Music is really great there, but stylistically it fluctuates between keyboards-based funk pulsation and very competitive soul vocals.

Possibly, strongest side of such Duke's albums is his very inspired keys/synth playing: very often similar funk-soul music from 70-s sounds openly commercial, but not here. For sure, almost all recording has nothing too much in common with prog fusion, but technical and vital Duke's instrumental compositions still can attract many fusion lovers.

Usually I hate pop elements in jazz or rock music, but George Duke is rare case, when great musicianship compensates pop-oriented music. Far not the best Duke's album , especially for prog fans, but still really pleasant to listen.
