One of Walter Bishop
's greatest records – an amazing session that's as funky as it is spiritual – and quite different than most of Bishop
's other work! The vibe here is wonderful – as Bish plays a host of keyboards, not just piano – and works in the company of other players who include Ronnie Laws on reeds, Gerald Brown on bass, Woody Murray on vibes, and Shakur M Abdulla on percussion – a beautiful mix of cats who help Walter
carry off some of his hippest recordings of the time! The use of vibes is especially nice alongside the electric piano – and titles include a great take on Bishop
's classic "Soul Village", done here in a nice funky version – plus a version of "Summertime" with Bishop
on organ, and the titles "Sweet Rosa", "Those Who Chant", and "N'Dugu's Prayer".
