In the past, 4Hero's Marc Mac and Dego have been able to get away scott free with remaking the work of Charles Stepney, George Duke, Roy Ayers and the Mizell Brothers, but a lot has changed since the 2001 release of Creating Patterns. Many of their once obscure sonic touchstones are now in the public domain, so when they record a track like Morning Child, which opens Play With The Changes, it may leave listeners less in awe of their tremendous progression into elaborate string orchestrations than wondering why they're still trying to recreate Minnie Ripperton's Les Fleurs. There are some impressive passages and progressions here and a couple of ace tunes, but nothing that's genuinely moving. Because each track features a different vocalist – alternately Bembe Segue, Jody Watley and Lady Alma right through to Ursula Rucker – Play With The Changes comes off more like a hodgepodge of singles and outtakes than a focused album. They should have it down by 2013.
