"this is not the best GG album. It fell prey to the late 70's sensibility. Various jazz greats had a decades-worth of trying to survive by piggy-backing on the success of soul, r&b, or rock covers. Grant made some absolutely sublime music at the start of the 70's doing just that. This is not up to Carryin' On, Live at the Lighthouse, Club Mozambique, etc. The main problem is the band is large. In his prime, whether it was the Idle Moments, Solid, etc era classic phase, or the relentless groove feel with Claude Bartee on tenor, Idris Muhammed on drums,et al. every member was crucial to the total sound. ALthough there are some great solos on Easy, this does not match his previous outings. THERE ARE HOWEVER on this album many moment of Green showing that near the end of his life he was fully capable of doing what he did best - mining the groove for all it was worth, with a technical and soulful style that was unique. He shines through the at times over-produced, too-much sting-section feel of the album."
