Travis Biggs is a keyboardist and violinist – and he’s best known for his one album Solar Funk on the Source label – but this is an earlier release that predates that one, issued on a small Detroit label, and with a rawer sound overall! The groove is sort of spacey jazz funk fusion – with vocals on a few cuts, but mostly a focus on the instrumental side of the album – served up by Travis on Fender Rhodes, synth, organ, harp, mandolin, and electric violin. Some numbers are laidback and mellow, but many others are upbeat and very grooving – with almost a boogie funk sort of groove!
Includes original versions of the tracks “Solar Funk” and “Tibetan Serenity“, the latter of which is an excellent instrumental with a very famous sample – plus the cuts “I Wish“, “Fly Like An Eagle“.
