Yesterday's Dreams-Alphonso Johnson

Unique and imaginative effort for Alphonso J.,, but considering his star personnel, I expected more. Album is inconsistent musically. Standout cuts are "Love's the Way I Feel...." with Dianne Reeves(vocals) and maybe "Scapegoat". Mike Clarke ( from Headhunter's) was featured on drums but he couldn't lay the funk like he did with Herbie. "One to One" is probably the best jazz-rock styled instrumental overall.

He's got to kick up more memorable melodies next time out.
