A beautiful album of spacey jazz funk! Eddie
Russ was a 70s keyboard genius – right up there with Lonnie Liston Smith
and Herbie Hancock in our book, although he never reached the fame of either of those players. This album's one of Eddie
's best – and it's got a smoothly produced soul jazz sound that's almost a takeoff on the style of Smith
's excellent records for Flying Dutchman – but a bit cooler overall, and with a great feel that links back to Russ' years in the Detroit scene. Tracks are uptempo and jazzy, with a strongly soulful vibe that features lots of electric keyboard work over the top of fast
dancing rhythms. A few cuts have sweet female soul backup vocals, and additional instrumentation includes trumpet, sax, and guitar. Tracks include "Zaius", "Salem Avenue", "Poko Nose", and "See The Light".
