One of the better albums of funky soul by percussionist Ralph MacDonald – probably because the groove's a bit more jazzy and tight, with less of the silliness of his other albums. The tracks feature a range of great jazz funk players – including Bob James, Eric Gale, Richard Tee, and Chuck Rainey – but the main strength is MacDonald's funky work on conga. The album features the classic "Jam On The Groove", a killer break cut from the old days, as well as a nice version of "Mister Magic", plus "Calypso Breakdown", "Sound Of A Drum", and "Where Is The Love".

Sublime work from Frankie Beverly and Maze – smooth, mellow, and perfectly put together, with a level of care and class that you'd be hard pressed to find in many of the group's contemporaries! The album's not one of the group's most famous, but that makes it even more of a treat, as you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album
