A stone classic from trumpeter Eddie Henderson – and a record that illustrates why he was such a key part of helping the spiritual jazz underground of the 70s find a wider audience at the time! The album's balanced between the freer styles of Eddie's roots and the tighter, soulful modes of the spiritual fusion generation – put together by producer Skip Drinkwater, who keeps the grooves up, but still lets all the soulful sounds of the musicians open up in a really great way! Players include Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Bennie Maupin on reeds, Paul Humphrey on drums, and Bill Summers on percussion – and they come together in a wonderful way, without ever overstating their own egos, yet still contributing everything they've got to the core. Henderson's trumpet solos over the top beautifully – and titles include "Mahal", "Ecstasy", "Butterfly", and "Cyclops". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Funky fusion doesn't get any funkier than this – and the album's one of the greatest 70s recordings by jazz funk trumpeter Eddie Henderson!

Capitol, 1973. Sealed
A completely fresh take on the Charlie Parker aesthetic of the bop generation – updated for the 70s, but in ways that are still pretty classic overall!
