AllMusic Review by

It is strange that none of tenor saxophonist Wilton Felder's solo releases are very significant, for he was an important part of the Jazz Crusaders' (and later Crusaders') sound. On his derivative and poppish date, Felder emulates Grover Washington, Jr. (but without the sincerity and drive), the electronic background is propelled by a drum machine, and there are many simple rhythmic vamps disguised as "originals." Ironically, Felder is the least important element to the dance date; the drum machine rules.
