Despite the exotic title, this is one of three fairly straight-ahead sets that guitarist Larry Coryell recorded for Muse from 1985-89. Assisted by pianist Stanley Cowell, bassist Buster Williams and drummer Beaver Harris, Coryell performs five veteran jazz standards (including "Moment's Notice," "'Round Midnight" and "My Funny Valentine"), plus the title cut, which is actually a boppish blues by Williams. Excellent playing all around.
