Infinite Spirit (Gluck / Hart / Henderson / Sullivan)
Revisiting The Music Of Mwandishi Band
Released in: Great Britain
"Since it's always a treat to hear Eddie Henderson and Billy Hart playing together again, we'll cool it with the snark so you don't get misled. What ever gave this set its genesis pales in comparison to the result. The kind of look back that really works out well since it isn't really trying to look over it's shoulder to ape every original move, this is a great chance for modern ears to hear classic works. Well done and sure to stand tall against the originals."-Chris Spector, Midwest Record
"The music of Herbie Hancock's exploratory Mwandishi band has captivated our imagination for several years. After exploring new arrangements of its repertoire, Bob wrote You'll Know When You Get There: Herbie Hancock and the Mwandishi Band, published by University of Chicago Press in 2012.
Successful trio and quartet performances fronted by Bob and Chris have led us to an opportunity to record a fresh take on this exciting music with original band members, drummer Jabali Billy Hart and trumpeter Eddie Henderson. The fire created during our initial trio foray with Billy stoked our enthusiasm even further."-Infinite Spirit
