I think this was probably Donald Byrd's most hardcore jazz-funk album from the mid 70's, and the album cover one of the most real and humbling.., another superb Mizell brothers production with killer fast-paced bass lines, tight punchy drumming overlayed with spacey-scat vocals and DBs multi-leveled trumpet playing and sophisticated flute.. Great tracks are the mid-tempo Flight Time, the electrifying Loves so Far Way and the inspiring Sky High.. just reminds you of the opening scene track of the Italian Job driving in the Alps "on days like this"...

This is unquestionably a classic. From the very first bars filled with the sounds of a Boeing 707 on take off to the effortless cool of the ending, DB has created a masterpiece. Often cited as a pivotal work in the funk jazz explosion of the early 70s, this is an album that no serious music fan should be without.

Great album that is part of the jazz to fusion period. Donald Byrd is a true GENIUS

Same as Ethyopian Knights for me. Great in places but not 100% liking everything
