Leaving This Planet

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
A definite departure from the type of earthy, groove-oriented soul-jazz he usually embraced, Leaving This Planet is perhaps Charles Earland's most ambitious -- and surprising -- album. Responding to the fusion revolution, Earland plays keyboards and various synthesizers in addition to his usual Hammond B-3 organ, and thrives in a very electric setting.

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
A definite departure from the type of earthy, groove-oriented soul-jazz he usually embraced, Leaving This Planet is perhaps Charles Earland's most ambitious -- and surprising -- album.

And in fact, those greats as well as trumpeter Eddie Henderson are among the superb soloists featured.
