      Produced by Wayne Henderson, 'Friends & Strangers' follows his initial departure from The Crusaders to form his new At Home Productions company. 'Flame' continues the flavour and recaptures much of the magic of it’s predecessor to make this a perfect coupling from a golden era of jazz funk and soul. Two essential jazz-funk albums!
