Item Description
Mwandishi is one of Herbie Hancock's first departures from his traditional jazz sounds. The album
which was recorded in a single session on New Year's Eve is a much more spacier effort compared to
his earlier works, created by Hancock's us of electronic effects devices. His sextet is the most
progressive ensemble he played with and he took the next step in the future of jazz. The music on
Mwandishi is beautifully atmospheric and the long tracks leave plenty of space for improvisations by
the group. A fantastic recording with sonic layers of earth, existence and expression.
Herbie Hancock is one of the most prolific jazz pianists of the 20th century. A child prodigy, he played
with the greats such as Donald Byrd and Miles Davis. As he was a bit of a geek, he enjoyed gadgets &
buttons and he was one of the first to embrace and master the electric piano, but he always stayed
true to the acoustic sound. In fact, he always bounced back and forth between his electronic and
acoustic sound, touching upon almost every development in R&B, Funk and Jazz while retaining an
original and distinctive voice.
