Flora Purim gathered several of her favorite associates for this album, then asked them to contribute original compositions as well as instrumental and occasional vocal support. What resulted was a tour de force in which Purim proved herself to be one of the most musicianly and innovative singers of recent decades. Unfazed by odd time signatures and abrupt tempo changes, able to blend seamlessly with various keyboards, she cruises through these eight performances, four of which were contributed by George Duke. Husband Airto Moreira makes his usual essential contribution, and Joe Henderson steps forward for a hot featured spot on "What Can I Say?," but this is Purim's show, and even when singing wordlessly she is the model of articulate vocal exploration.

with George Duke, Hugo Fattoruso, Jay Graydon, David T. Walker, Byron Miller, Alphonso Johnson, Ndugu (Leon Chancler), Airto, Oscar Brashear, George Bohanon, Ernie Watts, Joe Henderson
