Early 80s jazz fusion band from Cincinnati, OH. All-analogue keys, nice fuzzy rock guitar, all original compositions. This is a pleasant surprise, as it definitely has more of a mid-to-late 1970s sound. The trumpeter uses no effects, and sounds a little like Mike Lawrence did on those later 11th House LPs. The compositions are all over the place... some have definite Return to Forever type vibes, some veer closer to Stanley Clarke's stuff circa "Journey to Love" (lots of slap bass), some approach a sort of slick fusiony post-bop... not a bad LP and fairly typical of US private fusion recordings of the late 1970s (though it is from 1982!).
Nice review, Michael Sharfe shows up on many interesting albums (offering groovy bass styles) of the era, probably a 'for hire' musician, shows up with a typical set bunch of people to make a familiar rhythm section. Even found playing on some Canadian LPs. An xian album I'm going to sub soon has some of these guys on it.
