Dusty Groove on the case:Great soul jazz from the LA underground! Pianist Nate Morgan plays in the tradition of McCoy Tyner and Stanley Cowell, with a swirling spiritual feel that's deeply rooted in a Love Supreme tradition. On this LP, he leads a quintet with Jesse Sharps on reeds and Danny Cortez on trumpet and the record's filled with spiralling modal grooves that glisten with the best of the 70s soul jazz underground. The set's a great batch of original compositions by Morgan, including "U.G.M.A.A.G.E.R", "Impulse", and "Mass Madness" and also includes versions of Herbie Hancock's "One Finger Snap" and Duke Ellington's "Come Sunday"
