Few mid 70's "jazz-funk-fusion" albums can be classed as "fun" but this is about as close as it gets - superbly played music that keeps its head above the murky waters of self-indulgence that too many other records from this period fall into. The stand-out title track features an insidious bass riff, superb lead guitar and a quite breathtaking two and a half minute bass break that is just about as demanding as it gets without at any point losing the importance of keeping complex playing within a tight melodic structure... simply one of the most technically brilliant and enjoyable jazz-funk recordings ever made. And, the rest of the album continues in the same vein, showcasing some deceptively laid-back music that stands the test of time precisely because of its controlled combination of complexity and melody.

This is my favourite Stanley Clarke album because it has a little bit of everything he's so good at whether it's those quirky, edgy popping notes of his piccolo bass or that hard driving relentless upfront attack on the more conventional electric bass not to mention the sinuously woven tapestry of mellow sound on the upright acoustic.Along with Jack Bruce and Jaco Pastorius he's helped to push the bass guitar into new territory and as with those other two it's sometimes difficult to believe that what you're hearing is bass. Like Bruce he thrashes and plays it as a lead guitar and like Pastorius he makes it sing sweetly and melodically. Above all, though, on this album he makes you want to dance - the title track being an irrisistible invitation to get up and boogie.

Classic album from the all-time master of the bass guitar. Stanley Clarke plays the bass like no other and this album is a must have in any collection.

I bought this album on vinyl over 35 years ago. I loved it then and still love it now. Mr Clarke was, probably still is, a genius on bass.

Only three reviews? this album is simply a monster from which ever angle you choose to look at it. It's a fusion classic. But why?

Firstly:great tunes - hear the bass riff to 'School Days' once , and you'll never forget it.Also for your delight Stan has laid on the beautiful 'Desert Song' and the monster funk workout that is 'The Dancer'. This is simply a very entertaining album which is accessible to jazz lovers and loathers alike.

Secondly:for the die-hard fusioneers, the standard of playing is simply phenomenal.Stan of course is a unique bass stylist - his licks are instantly identifiable as his own, but more then that, he has good taste. Stan can get overly busy sometimes with the thumb and other digits, he seems to be happiest when he can get you groovin'. So unlike a lot of fusion albums,it's the tunes that matter not the showing off. Even so,those who enjoy great musicians having a blast will find that this album is a bit of a treasure trove.Drummer Gerry Brown is just outrageous throughout,in fact he complements Stan brilliantly,never over playing but always on the groove.Pride of place though, must go to that seriously underrated guitarist Ray Gomez. He blows a fuse or two on 'The Dancer' and of course he's all over 'School Days'. He's got real feeling for melody and though not a 'technician' in the machine gun fashion of Clarke's former band mate, Al De Meola, he demonstrates serious 'chops' when given the opportunity.Listen out also for John McLaughlin on 'Quiet Afternoon', where he plays some lovely acoustic lines,bringing extra life and depth to one of Stan's most limpidly beautiful compositions.

I kid you not, this is a great album.
