Sweet Soul Review

by William Ruhlmann

The album cover offers no clue beyond the notation "live" to indicate the source of these recordings, which find Gillespie and other, uncredited soloists with an electric band playing in a funk-fusion style. Though the headliner and his colleagues make interesting runs occasionally, few of Gillespie's long-term fans will be impressed, and the minimal packaging is no help to an appreciation.
