Harris Simon was a keyboardist, arranger, and composer who made two stunning records in that year of 1980. His other output is sparse, sadly. For me this is jazz at its finest with a great deal of invention, uncompromising u-turns into fusion and classical music, but held together into one comprehensive package of earthly delights. As well the presence of luminaries such as Billy Cobham, Michael Brecker, and Joe Farrell, couldn't really hurt, right

I'm surprised no one has noticed before... the labels are incorrect. The list side-b from the cover as side-A, and side-A from the back cover is actually labelled Side-B on the vinyl.
