One of the fullest albums we've ever heard from saxophonist Buddy Terry – a set that has him blowing along with a set of soulful larger backings – sometimes with a bit of gospel overtones as well! The lineup on the album's pretty darn hip – players who include Larry Willis on electric piano, Jay Berliner on guitar, Ernie Hayes on organ, Wilbur Bascomb on Fender bass, Bernard Purdie on drums, and Lawrence Killian on percussion – plus added vocals from a group that includes Dee Dee Bridgewater, Alphonse Mouzon, and Peaches Wilson! Buddy arranges and conducts – and while his tenor and soprano get some space in the arrangements, the overall sound is more focused on the full spirit of the group.
