Yeah, but for some reasond HH chooses to do electronics himself, and its's a lot more prominent and Kraut-y" than when Gleeson was doing it.

You'll find him doing it some more on Eddie Henderson's fantastic Realizations and to some extent the follow up Inside Out. Its got practically the whole Mwandishi lineup including HH himself.

 
Thanks for the cue, Christer.

Bennie Maupin and Julian Priester also put out albums with Gleeson and many of the others on board.

^Yep. Both great too. Love, Love doesn't feature Herbie, though. And if that one Bennie's The Jewel in the Lotus makes you hungy for more, check out Buster Williams somewhat related Pinnacle. Not as fantastic, but really good.

Truthfully, if there weren't easy out options and we absolutely had to choose one of the three, I would have gone Mwandishi. Ostinatio (Suite for Angela) is fantastic! It's the only song out of the nine that I can recognize and somewhat digest at this point. Hm. It'll take more work, but that's okay.

Anotherthing that makes the Mwandishi music so relevant with Bitches Brew is Maupin's bass clarinets laying foundation layers od wind instruments. That gives such a depth to the rest of the music.
 
You'll clearly hear Zappa working with this thing in Grand Wazoo and Jawaka

After further review, Sextant. Hornets is absolutely brilliant.
