An often overlooked and underrated part of War's legacy was their instrumentals, many of which were quite imaginative. War's members loved jazz, and they expressed that passion not because they had any illusions of trying to compete with Miles Davis or Joe Henderson, but simply for the enjoyment of it. Released as a two-LP set, Platinum Jazz gathered War's previously released instrumentals (plus one vocal, "Deliver the Word") with fine results. Jazz fusion material ranging from the unpredictable "City, Country, City" (arguably the band's best instrumental ever, and certainly their best known) and the salsa-influenced "Nappy Head" to the mellow "H2Overture" and the congenial "Smile Happy" show just how effective War's members could be without vocals. And when saxman Charles Miller and keyboardist Lonnie Jordan stretch out, it's clear that as improvisers, they weren't half bad. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi
