4 stars Chambers is a largely self-taught American Jazz drummer. His mightily powerful and heavy approach to the skins is almost one-of-a-kind. Drawing comparisons between him and Billy Cobham would be tempting, but rather erroneous as they are not really alike at all. To my ears the only similarity appears to be that both had excelled when in the employ of others, whereas their solo efforts appear to be somewhat less memorable - albeit not bad at all.

This album sports a stellar cast who play well with a professional approach expected of them. The music is very American Fusion with a slight funky edge at times. In it's genre it is rather typical with few highs, or lows. Pretty standard Fusion, something I find less engaging than the British approach of more Rock, Blues oriented Jazz-Rock. Still, American Fusion fans will find this work a very pleasing experience.

I have a couple of instructional videos by Chambers and to date, those jaw-dropping demonstrations remain far superior to this work on the scales of enjoyment.
