“I was fortunate enough to get this album when it was just that – an actual album. I like it for both Stanley’s electric and his upright playing. This is before another great album of his called School Days. You’ve got Vulcan Princess and Lopsy Lu on it, but there’s also Spanish Phases For Strings & Bass – all great stuff.
“It’s a very varied record, with a lot of funk, but he gets into some other areas, as well. The way he plays with Tony Williams is amazing. They're an incredible combination. A lot of heavy guys are on it – Jan Hammer, Bill Conners, Airto Moreira. It’s a very powerful statement in what fusion is to me, blending jazz and rock in Stanley's own unique way.”
