70's ny fusion

(2 out of 5 stars)
"this is another example of the type of 'fusion' that was going on in nyc in the late 70's.It was popular then for japanese artists to hire the top guys on the scene,make a record and be big stars in their home country.
This cd is cool in that we hear a young kenny kirkland burning on electric keyboards.Kenny was 'the cat' to be reckoned with at this time.Scofield sounds good here too,although he sounds better on chet baker's 'can't go home again' and his own cd 'live',also 'rough house' which I think were recorded around the same time.
The music is basically ,pentatonic scales or whatever,played in unison really fast then solos:either uptempo samba vamps or medium tempo funk groove.
it's ok I guess...if you are a kirkland or scofield fan."
