3 stars Jazz-Rock at it's worst.

I hate to say this as Neil Ardley is a respected musician/composer, but this album is amongst those that contributed to quality music being rejected, leading to Punk, New-Wave to emerge as if in protest.

To a novice, this album may come across as amusing, but when you consider that the thumping Fender bass is colored by the other instruments is insufficient to hold one's attention, the whole work just falls apart.

Closer to Funk than to Jazz, the whole delivery is just plain boring. The tracks are remarkably transparent and lacking any subtlety. No, not horrible at all, only a big let-down by the talents involved. Just plain boring.

With some grace, I can rate it as barely a 3, but if you wants to hear quality Jazz inspired music, I'd advise against bothering with this very lightweight release. I have no room for it in my collection.
