With 12 strings and three "background" vocalists sometimes being utilized in keyboardist Onaje Allen Gumbs' arrangements, this effort by bassist Buster Williams is often somewhat commercial. However the guest spots by pianist Kenny Barron, altoist Hank Crawford, flutist Hubert Laws and trumpeter Eddie Henderson are generally worthwhile and the material (four group originals plus "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "Betcha By Golly, Wow") is stronger than expected. In any case, this long out-of-print album will be a difficult one to locate.
