Having long since established his funk credentials, Hancock continues the direction of Head Hunters and its U.S. successors here, welding himself to the groove on electric keyboards while Bennie Maupin again shines sardonic beams of light on a variety of reeds. In Doin' It, the most successful track, Hancock makes a more overt bid for the dance floor, for the tune is basically one long irresistible groove with a very commercial-sounding bridge. Again Hancock chooses to recompose one of his standards; Cantelope (sic) Island is almost unrecognizable, converted into a sauntering, swaggering thing. A streamlining process has set in - the drumming has been simplified, some of the old high-voltage drive has been muted - yet there are still enough enjoyable, intelligently musical things happening here to hold a Hancock admirer's attention.
