While the virtuosity of Galore's smartly assembled crew goes deep, it's the nimbleness and unexpected rhythmic complexity that elevate
this above less ambitious forays into fusion.

A high octane, energetic romp throughout, this isn't exactly sunset on the beach fuzak, it's
real front and center fusion just like when the genre was getting started. Hot stuff that
keeps coming, this is how serious pros with nothing to prove sound when nobody is in the booth
telling them what to do. Check it out.

Overall, Andy Galore’s’ debut for Motema Music is sensational and with it, he steps into an
arena occupied by existing jazz greats and the memories of jazz giants. Recommended.

Galore's bass (along with great drumming by Gregory Hutchinson and
others) drives every tune, but it's his arrangements, with their odd
time signatures and unpredictable harmonies, that steal the show.
Every tune on the album is an absolute joy to listen to.
