David Matthews made plenty of great funky jazz records in the American mainstream of the 70s - and after his big years on Kudu Records, he went slightly underground - and did some great work for Japanese labels like this! The album's got Matthews on electric piano, working with an all-star lineup that includes David Sanborn on alto and Mike Mainieri on vibes - in a style that's kind of an 80s update of his earlier grooves - jazz fusion influenced with plenty of soul, and a leaner approach to the groove that comes across in the percussion and keyboards. There's a bit of vocals on the record - kind of a vocal chorus along with the jazz - and the titles include "First Blood", "Cosmic City", "American Road", "I Didn't Mean To Hurt You", "Special Delivery", and "Good Time".
