Inspired by the great Mainstream discography blog created by Cheeba I thought I'd repost this little beauty from the label of the Red Lion with a fresh 320 rip.

Not quite fusion not quite new thing not quite bop - just a hard hitting piece of jazz from Harold Land at the start of the 70s.His son is featured with Bill Henderson on both electric and acoustic piano and Bobby Hutcherson is deep in the mix along with pile driving drumming by Woody Theus and Ndugu especially on Black Caucus.This is uncompromising music from Land and his group.

Thanks so much - I have been looking for this album for years. Hutcherson is superb here (as of course is Harold himself)
