Michael Grange's music, which utilizes R&B rhythms, the leader's powerful rockish guitar and jazz-band originals, is consistently colorful and explorative within the fusion category. Keyboardist Neil Larsen, saxaphonist Steve Tavaglione, bassist Alphonso Johnson, drummer Ndugu Chancler and percussionist John Pickell (along with Grange) form a tight and unified group sound. The ensembles are mostly quite high-powered with the lead voices trading off and constantly inspiring each other. It's an exciting and enjoyable release.
