Drummer Billy Cobham is heard on this live set heading an all-star quintet also including Tom Scott on tenor, soprano and lyricon, keyboardist Mark Soskin, guitarist Steve Khan and electric bassist Alphonso Johnson. Although the music is mostly funky and uses plenty of electronics (Scott sounds quite faceless on lyricon), there are some strong solos, particularly from Khan and Scott (when he is on tenor). The six group originals are highlighted by “Bahama Mama,” “Some Punk Funk” and “On a Magic Carpet Ride.” Due to the amount of variety and spontaneity, Alivemutherforya is superior to most of these musicians’ individual projects of the era.
