Now this is more like it. Larry Young's venture into jazz/funk (hate that moniker) after the Hammond B3 Blue Note years, & avant-garde stuff with Tony Williams in Lifetime. A very satisfying move, but probably very difficult to market at the time, because this was too commercial for the old school jazz market - and far too abstract for the dance market.
It falls right into the camp for Herbie's Headhunters/Doug Carn/Lonnie Liston Smith/Charlie Hunter school of funk/fusion. That is - pretty ragged, pretty earthy and altogether uglier than the Califormian fusion from the likes of Lee Ritenour and the Crusaders. And thats a good thing methinks.
It boasts a great rhythmn section of Sandy Torano on guitar, Fernano Saunders on bass and Rob Gottfried on drums. Players I have never heard of before or since, but who really stump up a low level groove on this superb record.
Of particular note are 2 great numbers - the funk club hit Turn Off The Lights with Laura Logan on vox and a superb bass line - and the awesome 8 minutes of New York Electric Street Music with Larry himself on spoken vox. This song is for all Frank Zappa fans out there - it is hugely influenced by Frank's material of the time like Apostrophe or the Grand Wazoo. That could be Frank himself or Ike Willis doing the rap on this one (actually performed with tongue firmly in cheek by Larry). This album confirms the contradictions about the very best records - tuneful yet dissonant, abstract yet danceable, jazzy yet commercial & so on.......Terrific stuff.

it's a real pity that this album is not more affordable for most, having said that I'm lucky enough to own the vinyl.. The track 'Turn off the Lights' is worth buying this album for alone.. tight, raw funk with a killer baseline that just shakes you down, Linda 'Tequila' Logan's rip-saw psychedelic vocals are something else.. mid 70's funk at its purest..."turn off the lights I can't see a thing' ..will blow your mind

HASH(0x962615a0) out of 5 stars weakly funky 1 Aug. 2012
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The featured Amazon review called this album "thoroughly funky and often called the absolute best of his post-Blue Note recordings." Well, it's definitely different from his "Unity" album, and not nearly as enjoyable. While it may be funky in parts, there is also a definite fusion vibe. If I had to sum it all up, I'd just say that it's thoroughly weird, especially the album's closing track, "New York Electric Street Music." At least it's different. Musicians may find more to like on here than the casual listener. Young's keyboard work is a highlight, and the other musicians, particularly Fernando Saunders on bass, hold their own too. But overall, the material on this CD is weak and not very memorable. I never heard the vinyl, but there do not appear to be any bonus tracks of any sort to supplement this CD reissue, about 42 minutes in length. I don't think that this one will rank as any sort of lost jazz classic. For fans and crate diggers only.
