||SIMPLY PUT . . . .|
Simply put . . . 'Slav RULES!!!! Check out "From Far Away," a masterpiece combining string synthesizer, guitar, etheral vocals from Cheryl Grainger (yeah, Enya has tried emulating Cheryl via vocal layering), and MiniMoog. Too bad 'Slav prematurely switched from electric bass to (strictly) acoustic bass early in his career. Also, the 360 Systems guitar synthesizer RULES even to this day and age. 360 Systems should revive this cutting-edge effects machine!! Also, the folks at CDUniverse need to stop "dilly-dallying" around and FINALLY bring Slav's CD "Majesty Music" to CD format, another 'Slav classic, although this album may have marked the end of his work on the electric bass, with only one tune (X-Rated) using electric bass.

||A record to experience...|
Of course NY City is the track that would make anybody move and dance, but this record is much more an exploration based on high quality grooves with a HUGE bass sound.Ambiances are magnificent with great work by Herbie Hancock(and sometimes Miroslav himself) on keyboards completed by talented and unmistakable J.De Johnette and Airto Moreira.James Gadson is also perfect on drums. A great illustration of what was called "fusion" or "jazz rock" could be at his highest level of inspiration and execution...a must have!

||a great jazz-rocker|
The best album in the world of jazz-rock..."New York" is a great song, i've danced it more times in the early 80's, it arrived in Italy dance floors directly from New York "Studio 54"!!!...My best regards and welcome at this reissued!!!
