5.00 5

A lyrical masterpiece from the mid-60's. Freddie Hubbard and Herbie trade lines on extended compositions, as Herbie shows the world that he's more than just a soul jazz player by coming up with some of the most spiritual work of his career. Of course, that doesn't displace the treasure that is the original version of "Cantaloupe Island", the one that's been sampled by US3, but the album also includes lots of other nice moody tracks like "Oliloqui Valley" and "The Egg". Also includes 2 CD bonus cuts!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

This outstanding Mosaic ... CD
