Funky groove master Les Demar's legendary live recordings have been sampled by numerous artists and DJs, and have captivated jazz funk listeners and rare groove freaks alike with their raging drum breaks and intense grooves. Recorded at Concerts by the Sea in Redondo Beach, California, in August 1978, the eight-piece big combo's frenetic night is back in its original 1970s release!

The fusion-like 'Quetzal' (A1), which starts with an opening MC and cheers, quickly raises the tension, followed by the soulful 'Ambidextrous' (A2), with its gradually overlapping percussion, drums, bass, electric piano and horns, and then the atmospheric 'Island Winds' (A3), a mid-tempo funk number. The fast jazz funk 'San Quentin Quail' (B1) and 'Sambandrea Swing' (B3) are the highlights of the show, along with the atmospheric 'Island Winds' (A3), a pleasant mid-tempo funk number. They are! Of course, 'Music Is The Message' (A4) and 'Freedom Jazz Dance' (B2) featuring vocals are also great!
