CD Reviews

A must have for Crusader fans.

"This, the last Crusader recording which includes trombonist Wayne Henderson, is one of their best sessions. The funky rhythms and laid-back soul is undeniably "Crusader". Destined to be a collectors piece."
The word "classic" doesn't do it justice

"The word "vintage" is much more appropriate, I feel. This 1976 release is from way, way back in the Crusdaders' careers when trumpeter Wayne Henderson and guitarist Larry Carlton were still part of the group, not to mention Robert "Pops" Popwell who was the band's bassist. Produced by Stewart Levine, this is a collection of soulful, funky grooves over which each member gets to show his stuff. The vocal tune "Keep That Same Old Feeling" was a hit way beyond the boundaries of jazz and I remember hearing it on the radio a lot back in the day. It brings to mind something Roy Ayers might have done. The guys also got to show their vocal talents on "And There Was The Blues".

It's all good stuff but the ballads "Til' The Sun Shines" (written by Carlton) and "Serenity" (written by Felder) are my overall favourites. For Crusaders fans and fans of smooth jazz from the 70s (when smooth jazz was still being done right), this is definitely worth a look.

A much better album though, it has to be said, is the 1977 follow up to this one, Free as the Wind. It's more adventurous, more exciting and more jazzy. It also has string and horn orchestrations, arranged by group keyboardist Joe Sample. Highly recommended."
A Great Classic !!!

"This is a great album.It features fretwork by a young Larry Carlton.Reason enough to run out and buy this classic."
