This is a John Scofield album recorded during his tenure
with Miles Davis. There's no bass player hired as John is
playing the bass parts himself. Scofield got Dennis
Chambers on drums for later albums and touring but here
the drum throne is taking by Steve Jordan. A wonderful
choice. Jordan, as always, focuses on the groove and he's
an original master at that. Funky and driving without
The horn section (trombone, alt-sax) is the rare
combination of Ray Anderson and David Sanborn. Anderson
originating out of the free jazz-free funk corner, and
Sanborn the sought after studio musician/fusion icon.
Nevertheless the both find a common musical path on this
adventure. Listen to 'Filibuster' to hear them go in
higher gear. Peter Levin is humble playing keyboards.
A funky jazz album showing the fruition of an unique
talent. Miles knew.
