"Canadian Sunset" is bombast including brass, electric organ, and the eerie, abstract vocals of Lois Winter, who adds a sirenish, exotic dimension to four tracks. That alone sets this record apart from Maxwell's other works. "Carioca" is an entirely fresh interpretation only Maxwell could devise: slow tempo but with heavy, almost rock bass.
There are three originals: "Song of the Nairobi Trio" (which was covered by Command percussionist Terry Snyder), an umpteenth version of "Ebb Tide" -- this time with abstract vocals -- and "Sequoia," also with vocals. And some very interesting, spacy things happen in "Let's Get Away From It All."
