Trombonist Ray Anderson is typically uninhibited throughout this joke-filled set. His high-note screams are well-matched by trumpeter Lew Soloff and some of the vocals (most notably on the title cut) are memorable. There is some strong playing by the two horns (who are joined by the funky rhythm section of guitarist Jerome Harris, bassist Gregory Jones, drummer Tommy Campbell and percussionist Frank Colon) but, with titles like "Damaged but Good," "Alligatory Pecadillo" and "What'cha Gonna Do with That?," the humor and philosophizing are often dominant.
