A pretty disappointing album. Disco, disco, disco. The only redeeming song is a gorgeous ballad by Kenny Barron - "Sweet Love". The rest of the album is garbage.

This was the last Horizon album with the yellow & orange label.

And the last with Horizon as a strictly "jazz" imprint. A&M changed direction with Horizon after this both in look, music styles and label management. Artists signed after this were more "obtuse" (for lack of a better word) or "different." Not so obtuse as to be "avant garde" not jazzy enough to be ECM-caliber artists but not "mainstream" enough (for the time) to fit other clearly definable categories. The new look/style didn't last long though. Horizon was done soon after, only briefly resurrected again in the 80s as part of the A&M-distributed Word family of labels...
