Here’s a rare 2.5 hour recording of Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band live at the Strata Concert Gallery in Detroit. The performance opens with an incredible rendition of “Hidden Shadows” off of Sextant followed by a pre-Mwandishi Buster Williams tune “Firewater” off of Hancock’s Prisoners. We desperately wish there was video accompaniment to this one, but we’ll take whatever Mwandishi content we can get at this point… This is also one of the only live recordings we’ve heard that features the group’s synth guru Patrick Gleeson!
Big thanks to our good friend Linus Booth from Seance Centre for the tip!
