A standout set from guitarist Wilbert Longmire – one of a few classics cut in the 70s for Bob James' Tappan Zee label, done with some great help from James on production and arrangements too! The vibe is very much in the best spirit of the Kudu Records label at the time – plenty of room for Longmire's guitar in the lead, wrapped up in some tight arrangements with a nice undercurrent of soul – grooving a bit upbeat on a few cuts, but mostly laying back in a sweet mellow vibe on the rest! Wilbert sings a bit on one cut – and other players include Richard Tee on piano and Fender Rhodes, Bob James on Fender Rhodes, Cornell Dupree and Eric Gale on guitars, and Harvey Mason on drums – on titles that include "Black Is The Color", "Lovely Day", "Starflight", "Love Why Don't You Find Us", and "Good Morning".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Stellar stellar set by this great vibes player! Recorded with the same high quality as all the Ubiquity releases, and a loving tribute to a great player who hasn't had his due in many many years. At first, we thought "big deal, another Dave Pike record. It's new, and it's probably a lot ... CD
