Checking out the album note I find that Omar Hakim plays drums on every song joined by non other than Marcus Miller on Bass! On every song! Marcus wrote 3 of the songs.
MM is on a few of those Sanborn-era albums. As We Speak
was "the best" of those releases, IMO...perfect for Sunday morning brunches with friends (which has happened for me since the '80s).
Also, MM & Omar had a history prior to each becoming "a name" (IIRC, they met/played together at the Fame school in NYC; MM joined Miles, Omar joined Weather Report...Omar tried to get MM when Jaco split...)
FYI: MM is also on a few early Spyro Gyra albums (City Kids
, etc). Straphanging
by The Brecker Bros. is another good one.
