Overview

Some of the selections on this CD are quite successful in combining together jazz solos with danceable rhythms. Skip the two juvenile (and fortunately brief) raps and instead concentrate on the occasional sax solos of Rick Rossi, trumpeter Oscar Brashear's appearance on "Out of the Blue," the contributions of leader/guitarist Johnny Valentino (who wrote or co-wrote all of the music) and many of the catchier grooves. While some of the rhythms hark back to the 1970s, there is enough spirit and enthusiasm in the music to hold on to one's interest much of the time. The results are commercial but enjoyable for those listeners who do not mind funk rhythms being served with their jazz.
