Eddie Henderson - Sunburst mp3 album

Sunburst is an album by American jazz trumpeter Eddie Henderson recorded in 1975 and released on the Blue Note label.

Henderson continued to keep several components of the Herbie Hancock Septet together, for drummer Billy Hart, bassist Buster Williams, reedman Bennie Maupin, and now trombonist Julian Priester are back. But this time, Hancock is replaced by George Duke, and fusionaire bassist Alphonso Johnson and drummer Harvey Mason (late of the Headhunters) are added - and these switches make much of the difference.

Eddie Henderson's solo debut was excellent fusion album, one between best that genre releases of all time. Two years (and one album) later recorded " Sunburst" is really good album, but not on the same league. Some line-up changes happened; there is no more Herbie Hancock on board (he is replaced by very capable keyboardist George Duke, but not the same league as well).

Reviews about Eddie Henderson - Sunburst (2):
Agree wholeheartedly with s_caron below...one of the best spacey jazz-funk LPs out there : )
Interesting release by Eddie Henderson, more on a Gene Harris Astralsignal or Herbie Hancock Headhunters/Sextant/Thrust tip versus his other material on Blue Note which tends to be more straight up jazz-funk. This one sounds a bit more spacey. Definitely worth picking up!
