  • This is one of The Yellowjackets' most jazz-oriented sets. Roughly half of the music uses funky rhtyhms while the remainder is straightahead. "Jacket Town" sounds like it could have come from a good Eddie Harris record, Bob Mintzer's tenor is heard on a rapid run-through of rhythm changes on "Runferyerlife," keyboardist Russell Ferrante hints strongly at Chick Corea's acoustic playing on "Muhammed" and Mintzer's ballad "Sage" is memorable. This fine release is recommended both to The Yellowjackets' longtime fans and those listeners who mistakenly think that this popular group is a mundane fusion band. ~ Scott Yanow
Professional Reviews
Musician (5/94, p.50) - 4 1/2 Stars - Very Good Plus - "...the Yellowjackets have emerged from a recent recording slump with perhaps their best album yet....the band is still stinging after all these years..."
