Review by Kazuhiro
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars He frequently visited Japan and had worked on the recording before this work was announced representative's work "Future Shock" in 1983 including famous "ROCKIT" that he had made become a hit. At that time, this album "DirectStep" is announced to the period (end in the 70's). The announced time is 1979. How does his fan catch this work?[E] as the state of the transition period and saturation is faced only a little ..listening... he exactly in this workHowever, his talent has already been admitted in the world. The time that had been called Electric Herbie might have been limited in the 70's. And, this work of him shows the tendency to be acknowledged like that also in Japan where I live. However, it is a little regrettable to bury this work in the soil in the history of his long music. As for his work in the 70's, the element of Jazz, Fusion, and Funk might be a little strong. And, the musician who was able to reproduce it faithfully by unifying the music to his creation to accomplish the music that he had wanted to achieve really might have been gathered. However, the work of the period is not tinpot music at all at that time. The tune also plays technically. We will be able also to enjoy it.

"Butterfly" It is collected to his work "Thrust" in 1974. And, it is one of the tunes that to be represented by live at this time of him. The speed of very much or the tune is performed late compared with StudioRecording. The arrangement that Version is very mellow is given. It is a performance that can be listened at ease enough. Perhaps, I think that making feelings of this tune is large to take an active part of the drum of Bass and Alphonse Mouzon of Paul Jackson. "Shiftless Shuffle" It is a tune that unites into one by the band to the sudden change into early Passage from the rhythm of the shuffle and is advanced. It is a tune from which the dash feeling comes out very much. However, this tune is collected to work "Mr.Hands" of him announced after this work. And, with the chance to listen to Version from which you are collected to "Mr.Hands", you might become the prisoner of the Version. The drum of Harvey Mason's might teach it. "I Thought It Was You" is collected to work "Sunlight" in 1978. It is a little long in Version of this work compared with the original. However, this tune is often live performed by his favorite tune. Feelings of this tune might be Funk. He is performing this tune with Jazz Musician"Kimiko Kasai" of Japan. Anyway, he liked this tune. However, I enjoyed this work not compared it with Prog rock.

This work is recorded in Japan on October 17, 1978 and October 18. And, please look at the title of this work. This work adopts the method of calling "Direct Cut Recording". The method of carving Vinyl the sound directly at once while performing might have been a situation in which the failure was not permitted. This work recorded by such a bold method is a work that is technical and overflows with the tension.
