On The Line

LP (Item 521661) Elektra, 1982/1983 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

On The Line has a style that's a bit keyboard-heavy – in a way that seems to borrow from some of the 80s soundtrack work of the time, and which is clearly a nod to the success of the Lyle Mays/Pat Metheny sound that was breaking big on ECM. The move is a nice one for Lee on the best cuts – those that underplay the cheesier aspects of the style – and other players on the album are a batch of likely suspects that include Harvey Mason, Dave Grusin, Ernie Watts, and Steve Forman. Titles include "The Rit Variations", "Dolphin Dreams", "California Roll", "On The Line", "Tush", and "Heavenly Bodies".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prestige, 1965. Very Good+
A fantastic album from Sonny Criss!
