One critic labeled this recording as a misstep, and I've seen online postings that are highly critical of this recording. I don't necessarily agree. First of all, this is not a bebop record and it's not trying to be. If you listen to it in context, it's not bad and, in fact, is pretty interesting. It's conceptually similar to the Donald Byrd and Gary Bartz recordings of the era. If you don't like those, you probably won't like this. Jackie sounds good, though, and funky. If you want straight ahead, try Dynasty if you can find it . . . .
