    ProducerGerald Albright

    Personnel: Gerald Albright (alto & tenor saxophones, synthesizer); Kirk Whalum (tenor saxophone); Derek Nakamoto (strings, synthesizer); Onaje Allen Gumbs (piano, synthesizer); Will Boulware, Patrice Rushen, Joe Sample (piano); Patrick Moten (organ, synthesizer); Bobby Lyle (organ); Tony Dumas (bass); Ed Smith, Leon "Ndugu" Chancler, Harvey Mason, Land Richards (drums).
    Engineers: Craig Burbidge, "Rusty" Richards, Robert Seifert.
    Only the first 5 tracks were recorded live at Birdland.
    Virtually all of saxophonist Gerald Albright's previous recordings were in the pop/R&B field, making this mostly straight-ahead session a major surprise. Albright, alternating between alto and tenor, plays quite well throughout this set, which is highlighted by versions of "Impressions," "Georgia on My Mind," and "Limehouse Blues." Tenorman Kirk Whalum helps out on three tracks, and Eddie Harris makes a guest appearance on "Bubblehead McDaddy." This is easily Gerald Albright's most rewarding session to date. ~ Scott Yanow
