Organomically Correct revisits selections from three of Charles Earland's late-'70s Muse recordings. While most fans of "The Mighty Burner" treasure his Prestige dates released earlier in the decade, his sessions for Muse contained as much gritty funk without the fusion-ish over-production Earland toyed with that marred recordings like Intensity. The musicians on these tracks are spectacular, including tenor saxophonists George Freeman, Frank Wess, or Houston Person; guitarist Jimmy Ponder or Melvin Sparks; and Grady Tate or Walter Perkins on drums. Of the 12 tracks, nine are Earland originals, alongside Wayne Shorter's "Infant Eyes" and the standards "Undecided" and "Old Folks." Fans of organ jazz or funk should check this out. ~ Al Campbell

Rating 4.0 Good Cookin' Music Lover: from new jersey -- October, 14, 2009

This it not your your usual compilation. It contains a full Muse session from 1979 plus 1/2 of two others from a year or earlier all, on one CD. They may have deleted some overly funky tunes from the 1st two sessions for this swings straight ahead with a time out only for the ballads.
