Review by Kazuhiro
4 stars I think that "Tne Center Records" that belongs to The Shrapnel Label Group comparatively especially exhausts progressive music in Jazz/Fusion. Because it can be performed without the fact musicians obtain the support of Label Group and [**] cracking to the frame of music, it is guessed to the listener that the performance where the zeal is transmitted is tried. The musician who belonged from the end in the 90's to Label and had announced the work developed Hard Fusion or Jazz Rock that a considerably high-tension quality is high. It will be able to be said that "Vital Tech Tones" announced in 1998 is one answer in the route. It was Hard Jazz Rock of the high quality by three of Scott Henderson-Steve Smith- Victor Wooten people. And, the group that derives from the flow further and draws the same flow is this album.

Steve Smith of the drum that expanded the place of the activity to the band that was called "Vital Information" since "Journey" in the middle of 1985 expanded the width of the concept to Jazz/Fusion of the offer of more high-quality music with this Label Group. And, the musician who participated in the fact album has improved the creation by Label Group's the zeal of the Steve and working. Tom Coster of a keyboard player who was active with Santana has an element of the groove and a hard element very much in this album in the 1970's. And, the performance of Larry Cryell that might completely do the listener in KnockOut evolves and inspires a soul in all tunes. The fan that doesn't accept the Play for the performance of Larry either might exist. It might be how to make the sound and be the style of the performance. It is guessed that it is an appearing work as knowledge and the capability of three people are remarkable.

Work that guest's Victor Wooten and Benny Reitveld are really good is done and the album is brought close more perfectly. "Wrong Is Right" of the tune of the representative of Larry is reborn harder with this album. And, "These Are Odd Times" that overwhelming zeal, the explosion, and the dash feeling are comfortable will invite the listener to the crucible of the excitement. "Finare Wes And Jimi" of the last tune can be satisfied of the melody of the respect that shows the musician whom Larry really holds in high esteem. It is ..complete tune.. finished as other tunes always have the tension. I think that it is too regrettable to call this album the music of a simple project. The listener who likes music of work and Uncle Moe 's Space Ranch of Frank Gambale will be able to enjoy this album.

4 stars "Cause and Effect" marks Coryell's return to the electric full-fledged fusion minus brass instruments. Since this is a trio, there is more focus on thee tight interplay - Victor Wooten's bass is the fourth essential but less prevalent instrument. The album starts fast with "These are odd time ...
