OK, so you have a buch of virtuoso musicians, playing live. Could be a recipe for boredom, disaster, nasty sound etc.
Nope. That opening track is just tooooooo darn funky, I can listen to it over and over.
The rest of the album is no slouch, certainly Alphonso Johnson gives some blistering bass solos, with that unique sound that only he seems to have.
It's a mighty shame this bunch did not record more, but there you go - enjoy this at least as a fusion masterwork.

Great tunes, especially Hip Pockets, Almustafa, and Juicy. The four musicians all sound as though they've enjoyed themselves. George is brilliant, as is Alphonso and the rest of the band. Wish I'd been there.
