Simplicity and fun are the order of the day in this 1981 album by the titan of the tenor saxophone. For his seventh Milestone date since signing with the label in 1972, Rollins chose listenable themes, and tempos that make the listener want to move. Calypso rhythms abound, Sonny and drummer Tony Williams grooving to them like dancers in the Caribbean sun. The enigmatic guitarist Bobby Broom and vibraharpist Bobby Hutcherson, the other "horns," also provide support and commentary. As almost always in Rollins albums, Sonny's longtime colleague Bob Cranshaw is the bassist. Rollins performs an original by Hutcherson, one by Broom, two pop tunes, and three of his own compositions. His originals include "No Problem." The title accurately describes the mood of this affecting album.

with Bobby Broom, Bobby Hutcherson, Bob Cranshaw, Tony Williams
