(5 out of 5 stars)

"To my ears,there is a humor like Frank Zappa,some groovy funk-Jazz and a little bit of cheesyness,in the good sense,1970's Black poro funk/jazz cool stuff,they don't make it like that anymore,bring back the 70's and the 60's please!!Peace :}"
Fun curiosity piece
Benjamin A. Opie | 02/28/2007

"Bernard Purdie was given the chance to head up a quick session to score a film in 1974...the first primarily African American triple-X feature.

So despite being something of a novelty just for that reason, how is it? Not bad, and on some songs quite good. Hap'nin' is a lively instrumental funk with a great drum solo at the top, lots of Fender Rhodes and a touch of wah wah guitar; Pass Me Not is a pretty good gospel tune! The remainder of the record is a bit uneven (All Pink on the Inside? please...) but generally fun, played with heart, and worth a listen."
