AllMusic Review by

With less than 18 minutes of recording time, this Kansas City-based group offers light fluff in very conventional clothing. Saxophonist James Isaac is the ostensible leader, and he is joined by Gary Sexton on electric guitar, Chris Lewis on keyboards, Bryan Blew on bass, and Quinton McDonnell on drums. Sean Clouse plays trumpet on two of the four numbers. This recording might make nice beach music, as long as you do not listen too closely. But it squeezes out those elements of creativity and individuality that have long been associated with jazz music. With song titles like "After Groove" and "The Jazz Chicks," listeners should not expect much. Short on time and interest, this is one from which to steer clear. There are plenty of better (and longer) fusion albums available.
