I've been promoting this for a while, but I first got to know Eddie Henderson from his Mwandishi work, and he quickly became one of my favourites in Fusion.  Realization in particular is wonderful, I think.  I have a compilation with Realization and Inside Out -- highly recommended for JRFers and those into Hancock's Mwandishi  albums.  Sunburst was the first I got of his and I really like that too. I've only heard bits and pieces of Heritage and Mahal.

I've heard about as much as you have. Can't not vote for Realization. It even rivals Herbie's own Mwandishi albums.

Nice. Haven't got Space Probe myself, but I guess I should.

Got all these? Herbie Mann Stone Flute, Wayne Shorter's Odessey of Iska, Mal Waldron The Call, Terje Rypdal St... I could continue for hours.

Please do continue.  I still have so much to discover.

I do know all of those other than Mal Waldron's -- I'll be sure to look into that.  Brilliant albums.  I got Stone Flute recently; love it.

Good to see you around again.

Thanks! I now love Herbie Mann playing so much by now. That Push Push cover must have totally ruined his credibility. (Both Live at the Village Vanguard from '61 are original for its time and highly reccomendable). A lot of stuff released on his own Embryo label is great too (William S. Fischer: Circles Miroslav Vitous: Infinite Search, Ron Carter's Uptown Conversation)

The Call is pretty rare, I think. Read this.

Some more in a somewhat similar vein:

Bobby Hutcherson: San Francisco, Art Ensemble of Chicago: Les Stances A Sophie, Jan Garbarek: Afric Pepperbird, Smoke: Smoke (MPS, 1970), everything by Association + Association PC & Jeremy Stieg late 60's early 70's...

Most 60/70's jazzstuff reccomended at musthear.com is great.

How about you? Got any reccomendations. I'm crazy about this atmospheric, freeish, rockflirting electric jazz that peaked around 69-72.

I discovered some music thanks to musthear.com before -- very good site.  Bobby Hutcherson is indeed very good, and his is the only album I have of your list.  Thanks for the recommendations.

I wouldn't be surprised if you know all of these since I haven't ventured much into the obscure as I'm still discovering so much well-known music...

Miroslav Vitous' Mountain in The Clouds and Bob James' One are a couple of favourites. I like Pharaoh Sanders stuff, but then I expect that you know him well already.  I like Stan Getz' Captain Marvel.  I like Buster Williams Pinnacle (1975) considerably.  There are others that I'm forgetting.  I've been enjoying Don Ellis of late.

I don't know these two. Not Don Ellis either.

Most of the artists I've reccomended has got more that just one great album, of course. Esoteric Circle, Sart, What Comes After, Journey Without End, People in Sorrow mm... are just as great as the titles I've mentioned.

Know this one with Art Ensemble of Chicago and Brigitte Fontaine? One of my favorite songs.

Don't know any, yet. Sadly I'm still not uptodate with my Mwandishi era Herbie.

As for The Call you should be able to find it, just depends if you are willing to pay Japanese re-issue prices.

"Mwandishi" might be one of the masterpieces of Herbie Hancock. I think that the activity of Eddie Henderson is of course wonderful. I like his performance. And, "Butterfly" is collected to "Mahal". It is one of the tunes of the representative of Herbie Hancock. I thought that this album was not CD now. If it will become CD in the future, I will buy it.

It sounded familiar, so I may have heard it before.  I'll be sure to look into more AEoC.  I was fairly familiar with Brigitte Fontaine.

Here's a track from Miroslav Vitous' Purple (1970):

^Lovely. Got Purple already though.

Julian Priester's Polarisation should please in a similar way that Inside Out does (as in not as great as the former release, but still very good).

Wayne Shorter made a brilliant trio of free/fusion albums just before Weather Report, and that's Super Nova, Moto Grosso Fejo and the already mentioned Odessey of Iska. I prefer them all over his more well known titles.

Btw: That B. Fontaine track hasn't got much incommon with the other music we're discussing here, or the Art Ensembles of Chicagos other releases. I just like it so much.

I have both of those Priester albums, and the only Wayne Shorter album I have other than Odyssey of Iska is Native Dancer, so more on my wish list.

I really enjoyed that Fontaine track too.

Do you know Marc Moulin? (this is off Sam Suffy - 1974)



Now I'm listening to something different, and you may have it, but if you don't check ms, William Sheller's Lux Aeterna.  There are a few albums of that ilk that I want to get.
