Guitarist Pete Maunu turns in an impressive performance on this semi-fusion anthem. His notes are long, sustained forays. While Maunu's guitar is quintessentially fusion-sounding, pianist Soskin spends most of the tune in a more standard jazz mode. The cat can play. There is not much of Billy Cobham here aside from his perfect timekeeping. The short tune has a pleasing if slight melody, and is performed well.
