Free in America is Ben Sidran's fifth album overall and his debut for Arista Records, and showcases him moving to an even more eclectic margin where the lines between jazz - contemporary and classic - blue-eyed soul, and sophisticated pop begin to blur into one another. He had long established himself as an eclectic songwriter and interpreter, but here, cramming so many different types of songs onto a single album was, depending on your point of view, either the work of a visionary, or an egotistical exercise in excess for its own sake. Time bears the truth: it was the former
