Jack McDuff's organ has a very funky and fat sound but not in the "full speed ahead" Jimmy Smith style. Moon Rappin' is an atmospheric delight. Much of this album has almost a lounge feel to it. It almost plays like a concept album with its spacey textures and subtle backing vocals. There is plenty of experimentation with sounds here and all of the tracks work well, something like a soundtrack for late 60's interplanetary travel. Complete with wah-wah guitars & flutes. Overall I found this to be very worthwhile, easy to listen to, funky with enough intrigue to make it worthwhile listening to in detail..don't pass this up.
