Review

Review Text During the 1970s, Atlantic eventually lost most of the acts that made it a powerhouse in the 1950s and '60s, while increasingly turning to formulaic commercial fare in an attempt at trendiness and survival. This 12-track anthology shows the perils of jazz life in the 1970s; there are top-caliber tunes by the duos of Gary Burton/Keith Jarrett and Les McCann/Eddie Harris, as well as Jimmy Scott's histrionic but ardently performed "Dedicated to You" and the Modern Jazz Quartet's stately "Blues in A Minor." But Atlantic really put its muscle behind such songs as Herbie Mann's "Push Push," Billy Cobham's "Funky Thide of Things" and Jean-Luc Ponty's "Molecules." They were pleasant, but were neither on the aesthetic cutting edge nor constructed with enough hooks to be pop smashes. ~ Ron Wynn
