Having signed a presumably lucrative deal with MCA, Deodato took with him the jazz- Latin-funk-with-a-taste-of-the-classics formula that he perfected with CTI. But there was a sonic price to pay, for MCA's flat, lackluster sound takes a lot of the sheen and color away from Deodato 's arrangements and the sound of his Moonlight Serenade - Deodato* - Whirlwinds piano.
As a result, this record sounds like a washed-out, black-and-white facsimile of a Deodato CTI record, with one classical adaptation Schubert 's "Ave Maria"a fairly good reworking of Glenn Miller 's "Moonlight Serenade," and three Deodato originals, of which only "Whirlwinds" has a headful of steam. The large orchestra and band are populated by the usual mid-'70s assortment of New York sessionmen and women, along with the ubiquitous John Tropeabut there are few solos worth mentioning outside of Deodato 's own funky FaltyDL - Love Is A Liability displays.
