Genre: Jazz
This album is a tour de force of great playing all around!Check out the great band line-up. Benson plays his ass off and the rest of the band cooks! And Don Sebesky brilliantly conducts the orchestra so that it interweaves with the band and provides punctuation so that it is an integral part of the jams. This is almost entirely instrumental and recorded before Benson became famous and a fixture on the light jazz circuit.

Track Review:
1/ strong crescendo start, brilliant reinterpretation of the Airplane hit,
tempos slide back & forth 2/ slow tempo 3/ fast tempo 4/ slow tempo start> builds, fades, and builds to a climax, kind of like a bolero 5/ slow
tempo start> builds to midtempo and slows again throughout, sort of a soft bolero
