Traces (aka Kawaida)

LP (Item 11763) Up Front, 1969 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

A great little album from Herbie – it that says "previously released" on the back cover, but was actually released with Tootie Heath as leader under the name Kuumba, entitled Kawaida. It's a hip batch of afro-centric jazz, with a Strata East sort of feel: lots of percussion and spacey soul jazz work in a very righteous vein! Don Cherry, Buster Williams, Mtume, Herbie Hancock, and Ed Blackwell are all part of the group – and the tracks are all long and spiritual, in a style that's similar to the Heath Brothers album on Strata, but with a bit more fire. 3 tracks: "Maulana", "Dunia", and "Kamili". (Cover has ring & edge wear, a split bottom seam, and a mark from price sticker removal.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
