Dennis Coffey is best-known for his 1971 Top 10 hit Scorpio, but his career spans far-beyond the reaches of just one song. His 1974 "Instant Coffey" wasn't a commercial success but continued to champion the sound of Detroit funk.

Dennis Coffey shifts gears with Instant Coffey, belying the record's title with his most ambitious outing to date. If anything, the album is at times too labored for its own good. The 11-minute opener, "Sonata," suffers from its epic pretensions and overwrought string arrangement, although its sinuously funky bridge calls to mind the kinetic energy of Coffey's strongest efforts. "Chicano" likewise benefits from the kind of mind-warping wah-wah guitar Coffey first introduced as a session player on Temptations classics like "Cloud Nine" and "Ball of Confusion," while a superb reading of Lalo Schifrin's "Theme from 'Enter the Dragon'" emphasizes Coffey's skills as an arranger, giving the composition some serious oomph with a thick, richly textured bassline. Best of all is "Outrageous (The Mind Excursion)," a wave of Funkadelic-inspired cosmic slop.
