Mindblowing work from the mighty Frank McComb – an all-instrumental set, but one that's every bit as soulful as his vocal outings! As you might guess from the title, Frank's paying tribute to some of the greats from years past – and as you'd think from the electric piano on the cover, there's a deep 70s vibe to the whole album – amazing keyboard lines that recall the glory days of Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Patrice Rushen, George Duke, and other players who've inspired these grooves – but all handled by Frank here with a lean vibe that's all his own – real soul, and really soulful too – not some kind of quirky copycat tribute, and without any attempt to throw in too many contemporary beats – just the kind of real keyboard vibes we totally love – and which hardly anyone can record this well anymore! Tracks are all originals – and titles include "Chick", "Patrice", "Cha Cha", "Duke", "If It Wasn't For Herbie & Chick", "Just Ride", and "Asia".
