Murphy established a strong reputation as a bebop singer in his youth, becoming a fixture in the New York and London Jazz scenes. Jazz warped in the 70's with infusions from rock, and Murphy has moved on with the times. I loved his choice of covers in this album as it includes some of my favorites-- Hubbard's Red Clay, Hancock's Maiden Voyage and Canteloupe Island, Coltrane's Naima. And it's great to hear these classic pieces with lyrics. Being a dedicated jazz musician, Mark gives full license to his sidemen and there are some great solos on this recording. Heard on this album are Michael and Randy Brecker as well as David Sanborn. Mark's voice can be a little, how shall I say, "mooing" (as in cow), and this is my only reservation. He makes up for it by his innovative timing, vocalese and improvization. All of the tracks rock with great rhythms in keeping with the crossover times.
