"Herbie Hancock, Mwandishi - 180 Gram"

Herbie Hancock - Mwandishi - 180 Gram Limited Edition classic LP high-definition Virgin Vinyl pressing for superior fidelity. Recorded with the sly, space-funky band that Herbie Hancock formed as Mwandishi, is one of those cornerstone jazz LPs. It ranks with the best early, electric fusion for its fuzzing of textures, always used as bedrock for killer, roomy solos. A troika of horn greats can take much of the credit for the solos: trombonist Julian Priester, trumpeter Eddie Henderson, and saxist Bennie Maupin. Each generates great, dense ideas without betraying Hancock's eerie ambience and funky vibe. Yes, this is an aggregation of many 1970s-era ideas: renewed sense of Africanisms (at least in the band's naming), intensified percussives and rumbly rhythms that give props to everyone in neofunk jazz from Clyde Stubblefield to Funkadelic, although in a slowed, methodically rhythmic vein.
