3 stars You must be kidding if you know nothing about Jerry Goodman especially for those of you who were there during the glory days of early prog music in the 70s. The roadie-turned-violist was first famous with the Flock prior to his exemplary work with the legendary John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra. Then I was actually curious why no one penned anything here at this site on his second studio album released in 1986 until I find it today it's still empty. So I grabbed my cassette collection on this album and now I am writing it for you.

Concept-wise this album was meant different from any act Jerry collaborated in the past as this one is much on jazzy side than progressive one. Put simply this album is much less contemporary than The Flock and Mahavisnu Orchestra and also his previous album "The Future of Aviation". You can find it right away with the straight forward opening track "Going On 17". For me personally, this is an excellent track even though the rhythm section in jazz-mode seems like accompanying the soloist with simple arrangement. I enjoy the violin work he performs here. It flows nicely to "Tears Of Joy". He has also put his effort in a way that makes this album is musically balanced by inserting "Broque" and "Rockers" which sound quite dynamic.

Overall, it's a very good album with balanced violin solo, less contemporary than his previous work with The Flock and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Keep on proggin' ...!
