A really unique record from Herbie Hancock — one that’s almost completely improvised over Latin percussion! The setup is quite spare — and quite different than Herbie’s other Blue Note work — and the group features improvised backgrounds by bassist Paul Chambers and 2 Latin percussionists, Willie Bobo and Osvaldo “Chihuahua” Martinez. Herbie only wrote simple sketches for the songs on the album, and most of the work on the tracks was done live, spontaneously, in the studio — creating a very free groove that never goes too far out, but which is far more adventurous than usual. All tracks are long, and titles include “Succotash”, “Triangle”, and “Mimosa” (courtesy of www.dustygroove.com)
