4 stars What the late Elton Dean was all about.

Elton Dean joined up with the excellent musicians in The Wrong Object for this truly memorable album. Unfortunate, this was one of Elton Dean's last albums before he passed away.

Those who knows Elton Dean's work from Nucleus and in particular Soft Machine will be very happy in the company of this album. Elton Dean is improvising and soloing over the melodies laid down in the background by The Wrong Object. The band is very impressive with their light and loose playing. In particular, the under stated but still very impressive guitar licks by Michel Delville is everywhere and very impressive. They also work as a contrast to Elton Dean. It is like light and shade in the sound. Excellent stuff.

The opener Seven for Lee sets the tone and is the best track on the album. Elton Dean's improvisations is straight up your face while Delville is keeping the band tight in the background. This song makes a Soft Machine fan weep with joy. The rest of the songs is not that strong, but they are still great songs nevertheless. This album is also a surprising varied album where The Wrong Object also shines like a bright light in the darkness. The music here is also a mix of the Jazz/Fusion and Canterbury Scene. The latter one mostly due to Elton Dean.

Altogether, this is a great album and both a great farewell and a tribute to Elton Dean. This album is highly recommended to both Jazz/Fusion fans and Canterbury Scene fans.
