Label: Milestone Records - M-9068 • Format: Vinyl LP, Album • Country: US • Genre: Jazz • Style: Fusion, Jazz-Funk
The creative zenith of Smith 's jazz-funk pursuits, Gears pairs the veteran keyboardist with the sibling production duo of Larry and Fonce Mizellwhose shimmering, sun-kissed sensibilities perfectly complement the profoundly deep grooves.
Bolstered by fusion all-stars including Harvey MasonJerry Petersand Hadley CalimanSmith strips his performance of all pretense and artifice, forging lean, sinuous solos that ascend into the stratosphere. Mizell trademarks including wah-wah guitars, danceclub-ready rhythms, and celestial backing vocals further embellish the record's cinematic grandeur.
Negro (In The Ghetto) - Elvis Presley / Various - Disco Refrain N. 39 teamed with another sibling production tandem, Wade and Ralph Marcusfor the follow-up Forever Taurus. The handoff is virtually seamless, and for all of the album's commercial appeal, it still boasts the harmonic innovation and melodic beauty of Smith 's most persuasive efforts.
