Reachin'

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paul Clifford
Reachin' was released in 1976, when the Mizell brothers' stronghold in the fusion market was weakening and they were begining to lean toward more gospel and disco-oriented acts. However, some of the material on this set can be classified as Larry and Fonce Mizell at their best. Roger Glenn was a distinctive session flutist on all the Mizell-produced classics that did not feature Bobbi Humphrey. His debut set included the fast and furious Latin-influenced classic "Rio" and the plodding but infectious "Don't Leave." This album is an essential purchase for all fans of the great Mizell brothers, Larry and Fonce.
