      A singular album from the jazz guitarist - more well-known for his later period funk records - Fisher grooves here with a stripped-down jazz sound and group featuring organ and a second guitarist in Phil Westmoreland.

      Soul and style prevail, especially on the title track and a transcendent 12-minute take on ‘The Shadow Of Your Smile’. This Verve By Request title is pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Third Man in Detroit.
