Although he has appeared on a countless number of studio sessions, this release was (with the exception of an obscure Japanese date in 1984) drummer Steve Gadd’s debut as a leader. The Gadd Gang (comprised of the drummer, guitarist Cornell Dupree, bassist Eddie Gómez and Richard Tee on keyboards) was a likable unit that blended together jazz, R&B and some groovin’ funk. With the addition of a horn section arranged by David Matthews, the group plays Bob Dylan’s “Watching the River Flow,” and Wilton Felder’s “Way Back Home,” a medley of “Honky Tonk” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” and some basic band originals that can appeal to a wide audience.
