3 stars While this is a nice jazz album, which features popular, and not so popular, pop and rock songs from the sixties through the nineties, there is nothing progressive, and very little fusion to be found here.

The songs are mostly bebop, with fusion only in a couple of places, predominantly on Thieves In The Temple, by Prince, sort of played electric blues style. John Scofield's performance on the album doesn't elevate this to fusion either. Mostly, he plays in a stictly jazz style.

If I were rating this a a jazz album, I would probably rate it at four stars, but since we are talking prog, the best I can give it is three.
