George Duke had a tendency to couple his fusion world with accessible R&B songs. Once again he shows a discernable vocal development.
In "Tryin' And Cryin" the Californian together with rock singer Napoleon Brock overlay multiple vocal tracks. On "Seeing You" Duke lays on a glaze of soulful tenderness, whereas "What The…" is 30 seconds of frivolous funning around. "Back to Where We Never Left" is a witty gem in which Duke bundles his pool of synthesizers into a united groove, whereas "I C'n Hear That" shows off synth and marimba tonal colors in dialogue, with the bass riffing on the bottom.
The album Liberated Fantasies flows into the final bend carrying along the sonorous richness of Brazil. "After the Love" plays with the languorous erotic colors of the tropics, whereas all the band members are allowed to shine on the epic circa 10-minute title track with its hot samba flair: the rhythm section with Ndugu, Al Johnson, and Airto Moreira's percussion arsenal, Daryl Stuermer with his rock interludes on guitar, and Duke himself with inspired virtuosity on all sorts of synths and keyboards.
