On this one, the Crusaders definitely crossed from jazz into funk – but who cares, because the album's so darn great! The record's got a tight LA groove, with some excellent electric keyboards, sweet sax solos, and tight drumming throughout. True proof that sometimes a lot of money can be put to good use to improve a band's sound in the studio – and with the tracks to back it up, like "Creole", "Chain Reaction", "Rainbow Visions", "Hallucinate", and "Soul Caravan". This is album is to jazz funk what Steely Dan's Aja was to 70s rock!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Impulse, 1964/1976. Near Mint-
One of the greatest albums ever from Yusef Lateef – even if it's sometimes overlooked! The album was issued in the 70s, but it features material from the famous Live At Pep's concert in 1964 – but which didn't appear on that initial record. In fact, it's arguably a lot hipper than ...
