3 stars This career move or step is a bit surprising considering Coryell's roots in jazz for last decades. What we get here is neither a post-bop, nor fusion, nor contemporary jazz, this is late 60's psychedelic jazz- rock, which is quite straightforward in compositions but intricate in playing and sometimes intensity. It's nice to hear Coryell soloing, riffing and accompanying and bringing the rough touch. Psychedelic Hammond addition in a few numbers like the title track is excellent. Drumming is solid and reminiscent of late 60's intensity. Two acoustic numbers "Clear skies" and "First day of autumn" do not fit into this style but provide a 180 degree turn. There are even traces of hard rock like riffing on "Stadium Wave".
