A truly awesome album, hidden behind yet another truly dreadful cover. Carin Goldberg, hang your head in shame! Tucked away in that sleeve, comes an info/picture insert showing McCoy looking pretty chuffed with his light summer suit he must have picked up from Mantilla's tailor.
A top notch line-up that includes Bobby Hutcherson, Hubert Laws, Marcus Belgrave and Chico Freeman. All five tracks are damn fine, with La vida Feliz and Walk Spirit/Talk Spirit being the stand outs.
