"If you're not part of the solution..........

"...You're part of the problem". (5) stars for this 11:00 minute funk/jazz track alone!!The playing on this album is smokin', especially the rhythm section of Lenny White on drums, Ron McClure on bass and George Cables on electric piano, but the only funky track is the one mentioned above. All my favorite jazz albums seem to be live-I love the way the songs are stretched out to the limits and than brought back, like a journey of the mind. I just got this CD about two weeks ago and it's been in my player since. It's a great sounding live experience. Get it while the gettin's good!"

"This is one of very few exceptions to my- No electric piano rule-Joe and Woody Shaw play louder than the rhythm section so as to render them almost moot. You feel the rhyhm section more than you hear them at times and George Cables doesn't solo on all the tunes. Joe and Woody had played together before on organist Larry Young's UNITY session for Blue Note. Also on Horace Silver's CAPE VERDEAN BLUES. It was Joe and trumpeter Carmell on some trackks on Horace's more famous SONG FOR MY FATHER."
Joe Henderson caught live in the act

"I took a few lessons from the late great Joe Henderson in the mid 70's when he resided up north in the San Francisco bay area near Colma. In my opinion, he was one of the best of the post-Coltrane saxophonists along with Wayne Shorter. This set culled from his performances at the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, 22 miles from L.A., represent one of his best live performances along with the "Live in Japan" date. The greatly under-rated trumpeter Woody Shaw, George Cables on Rhodes electric keyboard, Ron McClure on bass and Lenny White on drums composed a power house group with some Henderson originals (Isotope, Inner Urge, Recorda-Me) and some of the Blue Note tunes like "Blue Bossa", "Mode for Joe" and standards like "Round Midnight", "Invitation" ( a tune I've heard Joe play many times live and on record). If you're a fan of Joe Henderson or a hard bop buff, do get this one--it smokes!!"
