A cool little record that was co-produced by David Axelrod and Muscle Shoals soul genius Rick Hall.

One of Lou's excellent Capitol sessions produced by David Axelrod!

One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album.

A nice mix of slap-bass funk and mellower numbers – with the mellower tunes winning out in our book!

Lovely vocal work from Irene Reid – deeply soulful, yet also quite classy – thanks to some well-done arrangements by Frank Foster and Mort Garson, both of whom bring a fuller, jazzier feel to the set.
