And those grooves are enjoyable too -- perhaps the reggae revision of "Sara Smile" doesn't quite gibe and there are certainly too many incidents of thick backing vocals on both albums, making this heavily redolent of its time, but much of the appeal is its polyester shimmer, and when these two records are seen as R&B-heavy fusion workouts, not jazz sessions, they're fun pieces of fleeting mood music.
