Recorded In 1980, this album features famous sidemen such as: Carlos Santana (guitar), Ray Parker Jr. (guitar), Alphonse Mouzon (drums and keyboards) and Sheila Escovedo (percussion). Nice, light fusion effort that can be viewed as a fore-father to today's acid jazz.
This is not a Disco album!!

"For the record the Disco era pretty much died in late 1979. This album is a very energetic funky dance album. Incredible funky latin tune Saturday Night which features Santana and Sheila E killing it on percussion! A very underrated effort from Herbie. Seems like people only want their artists to play only one style of music. Herbie proves he can do it all effectively."

"Yes the opening dance-funk of "Saturday Night" features
as honest to goodness jazz piano solo by Hancock along with
Santana's gripping guitar solo-it sounds alot like "Marathon"/
"Inner Secrets"-era Santana band really."Stars In Your Eyes" is
a VERY sexy slow groove with a equally lilting Ray Parker Jr.
guitar solo."Go For It" has it's share of retro disco pleasures
(even if some of those pleasures are guilty" but the meat of
"Monster" is in the uncontrolable DINASAUR fonk of "Don't Hold It In" grooving,jamming and throwing killer guitar and electronics at you!Even with "It All Comes Down"'s bizzare
fusion of funk and progressive rock fans of "Feet's Don't Fail
Me Now" era Hancock will be at home here."
