Mwandishi was released in Herbie Hancock's sweet spot of 1970. Released in between his late '60s Blue Notes (The PrisonerSpeak Like A Child) and his early '70s Headhunters records, Mwandishi is the best of both worlds: contemplative jazz and formative funk. The album consists of 3 long players, averaging about 15 minutes in length. "You'll Know When You Get There" has been a huge influence on abstract beats and downtempo. There's so many wandering basslines and horns, no wonder it's staple sample material. You can hear the early sketches for The Headhunters on "Ostinato", a very early example of "space funk." Lastly, the side-spanning "Wandering Spirit Song" is an incredible 20 minutes of jazz explorations a la Bitches Brew. Recommended.
