The title track is one of several highlights from a 1971 Tjader gem, where the Latin/jazz innovator applies the then-latest in studio technology to create a collection that holds up extremely well. With a diverse array of material (composed by Johnny and Shuggie Otis, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and Clare Fischer, among others), some tasty arrangements that even make delicate use of voices in spots, a dash of solo horns on "Now," and the exceptional familial teamwork of Pete and Coke Escovedo, Tjader turns in one of his most diverse sessions. The remainder of this CD, recorded the following year at the Funky Quarters nightclub, features more strong playing from the leader and electric pianist Al Zulaica plus different strengths--fertile new material, old hits refashioned in new arrangements, and a strong third solo voice in bassist John Heard. As usual, Tjader builds his bands and his grooves from the rhythm section up--and the team of Heard and drummer Dick Berk was one of the vibist's best.

with Luis Gasca, Pat Houston, Bill Perkins, Mel Martin, Al Zulaica, Ron McClure, Phil Escovedo, Dick Berk, John Heard, Pete Escovedo, Michael Smithe, Coke Escovedo, and others
