      Recorded when Johnny Walker was touring worldwide with veteran jazz star Lionel Hampton in 1982 and originally released on his own private press label - Walk On Productions. This neglected underground classic LP has been off the radar since then except for the appearance of "Dipping" on the Kev Beadle ‎– Private Collection (Independent Jazz Sounds From The Seventies And Eighties) compilation on BBE Records. Almost unknown and unjustly negected, it's a funk drenched jazz journey with some crunchy fat beats laid down by the excellent rhythm section complementing Johnny Walker's cool horn stylings. Reminiscent of the albums of that early jazz dance era by Tom Browne and Rahmlee but with less of a commercial edge and wholly instrumental this is funky jazz that has not dated and sounds like it was fresh out of the studio in 2022. Funk all the way on "Dipping" and "Dirkie" while "Arrival" is one for the jazz dancers.
