I sincerely dig it but it lacks “flava'”& fluidity during the solos. It’s the equivalent of good food but without spices so it’s bland & needs some seasoning of some sort. The music seems stiff at times even though they’re all extremely competent cats.

I dig! I love the fusion vibe. In my opinion, the rhythm sections was great. Drummer is extremely solid. I dug the bass solo quite a bit. The older I get the more I’m (bass headspace) I’m like ‘oh that sounds cool, what is he doing there?’ Which is what I experienced listening to the bass solo. Again, I DIG! Thanks
