When Lonnie Liston Smith left the Miles Davis band in 1974 for a solo career, he was, like so many of his fellow alumni, embarking on a musical odyssey. For a committed fusioneer, he had no idea at the time that he was about to enter an abyss that it would take him the better part of two decades to return from. Looking back upon his catalog from the period, this is the only record that stands out – not only from his own work, but also from every sense of the word: It is fully a jazz album, and a completely funky soul-jazz disc as well. Of the seven compositions here, six are by Smith, and the lone cover is of the Horace Silver classic, "Peace." The lineup includes bassist Cecil McBee, soprano saxophonist David Hubbard, tenor saxophonist Donald Smith (who doubles on flute), drummer Art Gore, and percussionists Lawrence Killian, Michael Carvin, and Leopoldo. Smith plays both piano and electric keyboards and keeps his compositions on the jazzy side – breezy, open, and full of groove playing that occasionally falls over to the funk side of the fence.

From beyond the tyranny of the keyboard came records of epic disco like these two, utilizing full string orchestras and creating flights of fancy that today's button pushers could only dream of arranging. Mike Theodore was at the cutting edge of '70s disco and still sounds ahead of the pack! This is a welcome re-press of two legendary albums on one CD.

Michael Gandolfi (b. 1956) composes bright rhythmic and always interesting music. ...In this collection of recent works, he offers inventive music for three miscellaneous instruments of the classical orchestra. The most classical piece, with its standard three-movements, fast-slow-fast, is the concerto for bassoon, a dandy, colorful composition requiring virtuosity. .. The four movements of the Fantasia brings together some extraordinary musical explorations... The first two tracks of the album constitutes From The Institutes of Groove, which features the bass trombone of Angel Subero, who has traveled the worlds of classical, Latin, and jazz. The first section, Too Jazz for Rock, is amusing because it is too classical for jazz! It is an exciting, atmospheric, rhythmic romp that blends the three musical styles. Rising on the Wing is a pulsing spiral of keys, ending at the next octave, that puts the slide of the trombone to good use in its glissandi. ...In short, this charming Gandolfi album is groovy, man.

The Singers Unlimited were a four-part jazz vocal group formed in 1971 by Gene Puerling. Members of the group included Len Dresslar (better known as the Jolly Green Giant in General Mills commercials), Bonnie Herman, Don Shelton and Puerling himself. Gene Puerling and Don Shelton had formed part of Puerling's successful all-male vocal group, The Hi-Lo's, some years previously, though Shelton was a 1959 replacement for original HiLo Bob Strassen. The Singers Unlimited group were originally formed to record for commercials in the USA, but as time passed, they were persuaded to enter the recording studio to record a series of albums. On the recommendation of pianist Oscar Peterson (who was also signed to the label at the time), they gained a contract with German label MPS. They recorded two albums in 1971, the first a cappella, the second, In Tune with Peterson's then-current trio. The group produced 15 albums, of which arguably the most well-known is their Christmas album (which was actually recorded before the group's association with MPS.) All of the 14 albums they recorded specifically for MPS (between the years 1971-1982) are collected in the 7-CD box set entitled Magic Voices.
