Organist Charles Earland and his regular quintet of the time jam through three Horace Silver songs (a high-powered "Blowing the Blues Away," "Strollin'," and "Quicksilver"), Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance," Joe Sample's funky "Put It Where You Want It," the traditional gospel tune "This Is the Day," and a pair of R&B hits ("Sweet Love" and "For the Love of You"). Although the R&B numbers are less interesting, the powerful title cut and the solos throughout of Earland, tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, and trumpeter James Rotondi, along with the support generated by guitarist Bob DeVos and drummer Greg Rockingham, make this a highly enjoyable date. Charles Earland shows once again why his title of "the Mighty Burner" perfectly fit his playing and his music. ~ Scott Yanow
