:::Inside Out:::

Posted: Thursday, 30 July 2009 by jazzlover in Etykiety: , , , , , ,

The Herbie Hancock Septet was technically out of business around this time, superseded by the Headhunters, yet the group shouldered on briefly in the studio for a second album under the leadership of its trumpeter, Eddie Henderson. With Bennie Maupin back on a variety of reeds, Hancock on electric keyboards, Patrick Gleeson on synthesizers, Buster Williams on bass, and Billy Hart on drums, Henderson again had rounded up everyone in the group except Julian Priester, adding second drummer Eric Gravatt (from Weather Report) and Bill Summers (from the Headhunters) on congas. One can feel the funky influence of the Headhunters entering the building, particularly in the basslines and Hancock's wah-wah keyboard work, but this is still very much the music of the Septet -open-ended and almost free, heavily electronic, spiritual in intent, and enormously stimulating. Although Henderson and Maupin control the repertoire, the trumpeter continues to interact virtually as an equal among equals, sounding more haunting and free-floating now. Drier in texture and less frantically driven than Realization (its Capricorn label predecessor), Inside Out nevertheless is the de facto swan song of one of the great bands of jazz-rock.

    For your attention:

    Don't let "Simon666" fool you. Simon Hunt is supporting the mentally ill "Rab Hines" (another anonymous web entity) for more than three years-- for the sole purpose of libeling a German jazz musician named Leicht. More about the matter here:

    Like "Hines", Simon 666 is one of the most notorious and disgusting trolls on the internet.
