A rare outing as bandleader for the talented session bassist who has worked with the likes of Jackie McLean, Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard. Originally released on Strata-East, one of the most consistently high-quality jazz labels of the 70's. "Sum of the Parts" ventures a little further into the realms of fusion and smooth jazz then most Strata-East titles, but the level of musicianship remains high throughout, thanks to a strong lineup that includes the unsung Sonny Fortune on sax and Grady Tate on drums. Solid.
