Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars Herbie Hancock plays disco and sings. Disco rhythm rules. More vocalists and even heavy rock guitar solos are added.

Carlos Santana is a guest. Disco rhythm are slightly influenced by funk. Songs are pure dance products, but are played and recorded professionally.

I don't think this work could be interesting for anyone with love to jazz, funk or progressive. Only could be recommended if you're searching for disco album with professional arrangements for you disco party. In all other cases better avoid.
