AllMusic Review by

Back to a more varied approach -- encompassing Latin, funk, jazz-rock, and even country ("Country Rose") -- with nice results. Nine insturmentals and only two vocals (reprising Canned Heat's "Future Blues" and Pure Food & Drug Act's "My Soul's on Fire"), handled by Lori Davidson, on this live-in-the-studio audiofile set. Mandel's nod to B.B. King on "Mashed Potato Twist" is worth the price of admission.
