Originally released in 1969. Exact repro, manufactured by Rhino. "The string section, as heard on the opener 'Bishop School,' is far from the pastoral or classically seeking group of recordings past, but another rhythmic and melodic construct that delves deep into the beat and the almighty riff that this recording is so full of. For all of the soul-jazz pouring forth from the Blue Note and Prestige labels at the time, this album stood apart for its Eastern-tinged melodies on 'Eastern Market'; the 'Black Bottom,' gutbucket, moaning bluesiness on 'Russell and Elliot,' with Gale and Lateef on tenor trading fours in a slowhanded, low-end groove; and the solid, Motown-glazed, rocking Latin soul of 'Belle Isle.'" -- All Music Guide
