One of the bolder records from tenor saxophonist Paul Jeffrey
– a player from the east coast scene who recorded most strongly for Mainstream records in the early 70s! The group on this album is relatively large – directed by Ernie Wilkins, but with modes that are a lot looser and more angular than some of Ernie's earlier charts – with very lively interplay between Jeffrey
's tenor, and other horns that include a young Hamiet Bluiett on flute and baritone, Joe
Gardner on trumpet, Stuart Butterfield on French horn, and JC Williams on bass clarinet. Bluiett is great here, and really gives the record a distinct vibe – and other surprises include George Cables on piano, TS Monk Jr on drums, and both Wilbur Ware and Stanley Clarke on bass. Titles include"FU", "Immigration", "Motor Drive", "Ina", "Kim", "Rodan", and "Bianca".
