The Isley Brothers’ line-up changed over the years, but by the time this album came out it had settled into the six-piece unit that would rack up a number of classy chart hits up to 1983. It comprised Ronald Isley on lead vocals, plus O’Kelly Isley, Jr. and Rudolph Isley on lead and backing vocals, with Ernie Isley on guitars, percussion and drums. Marvin Isley supplied bass guitar and percussion, and Chris Jasper was on keyboard duties. In the case of Harvest for the World, this meant acoustic piano, clarinet and an early ARP synthesiser.
Laws decided to cover the Isley Brothers' popular 1976 album Harvest for the World, which contained the hits "Who Loves You Better" and "Harvest for the World," as well as "At Your Best (You Are Love)," which was later covered by Aaliyah. Since Laws' music always had pop and urban soul overtones, it wasn't a huge leap for him to rearrange these tunes as smooth jazz, but it is a surprise that he invests his performances with a lot of heart, passion, and conviction. Ultimately, Laws' Harvest for the World isn't much different stylistically than his average smooth jazz album, but it is one of his better efforts, since it has a batch of eight strong songs and uniformly enjoyable performances, including some of his better improvisations.
