It is a very difficult task to make an album of jazz that is "out," "free," "experimental," etc. that is also highly enjoyable to listen to, and – dare I say the f-word? – funky. But that's exactly what Steve Reid does on this monumental album (with a not insignificant amount of help from his friends). His tastefully sparse drumming propels forward these five hunks of snappy, trippy, and, yes, funky music. As the title says, this music is all about rhythm, but Reid and his ensemble don't abandon melody on this journey in the least. Of particular note is Arthur Blythe's alto sax, "Kai" being his standout track. No review of this album, though, would be complete without mentioning the obvious highlight: "Center of the Earth." Its exuberance makes it seem almost like some lost game show theme; it's a wonderfully joyful composition.
