AllMusic Review by

Joe Locascio mostly sticks to electric keyboards on this intriguing set of crossover jazz. The music grooves although none of the originals are all that memorable by themselves. A major asset is the harmonica playing of Gary Weldon, which is often in the lead, giving the band an unusual sound. Warren Sneed gets off a few passionate tenor solos, and the rhythm section is solid if not distinctive. This will be a difficult set to locate (the Optimism label is long extinct) but succeeds as danceable and soulful jazz.
