Format: Audio CD
Because the two albums that are reissued here -- combined in their entirety onto one CD -- have been out-of-print for so long, REALIZATION and INSIDE OUT are relative unknowns in comparison to the most acclaimed fusion-jazz era CDs by the likes Of Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Weather Report, Herbie Hancock, and others. Yet after several listens to this collection I'm seriously pondering if trumpeter Eddie Henderson may have done the best job of them all in highlighting the strengths and creativity of the fusion era while avoiding its weaknesses and excesses. At the very least the albums collected here should be counted alongside the best 1970s efforts by those other artists I mentioned. It's great to have this music finally available in CD format.

Much of Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi band -- including HH himself on keyboards -- are in on these sessions. Yet given that Henderson wrote most of the tunes and has his own distinct ideas on how to focus the diverse textures that comprise this electric-meets-acoustic jazz approach, it would be unfair to look at these cuts as Hancock sessions issued under Henderson's name (as sometimes might be the case due for contractual or other reasons). As for the music, you get consistently brilliant playing by Henderson, equally strong statements by reedman Bennie Maupin, Hancock, and others, timeless instrumental textures (where you might find a combination of acoustic bass, fender rhodes, and synth washes blending seamlessly together), and a bold mix of funk and straight-up jazz rhythms. Despite all that is going on, there is a uncluttered sense of wide-open space on these tracks. Also, while the musicians are in a progressive frame of mind, the results should be easy-to-grasp for anyone who doesn't have an anti-electric jazz bias.

Realization is one of the most important works from the fusion era, grand in scope and vision, and flawlessly executed. More melodic and ethereal than Miles Davis at his best, Eddie Henderson's Realization has a spiritual center that the Prince of Darkness never achieved (though he came close in Bitches Brew and In a Silent Way). The backup band, essentially the Herbie Hancock band at the time, goes off the charts, and Henderson is ahead of them all the way. Arguably the most beautiful jazz album recorded. Also worth buying is Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi: The Complete Warner Bros. Recordings. Same band. Same sound. Same quality.

Yea, this is the REAL stuff!! Bless you Soul Brother Records for re-issuing these two long-lost
masterpieces on cd. Trumpeter Dr. Eddie Henderson (he's a psychiatrist as well) is a BAAAAD
horn player. This release includes (for the FIRST time on cd anywhere) the two complete lp's
Henderson made as a leader back in 1973, "Realization" and "Inside Out", both recorded on the
Capricorn label, available for only a short time EVEN then, and out-of-print ever since. They're
both mind-bending and beautiful works of art that are brilliant extensions of Herbie Hancock's
Mwandishi band/concept of which Henderson was a member. Hancock's final Mwandishi album
was "Sextant" which was recorded in 1972 on Columbia. As a youngster growing up in the Bay
area, Eddie studied trumpet at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and played in the San
Francisco Conservatory Symphony Orchestra. Miles Davis was a friend of his parents and he
met Davis when was 17, but it was after he returned to the Bay area having completed his
medical education at Howard University in 1968 to begin his internship and residency that he
started his musical career. It began when he joined Hancock's highly experimental Mwandishi
band after a week-long date with the group which lasted three years and produced three lp's
from 1971 to 1973 before Herbie disbanded it. On Henderson's "Realization" and "Inside Out",
the core Mwandishi band is present (minus trombonist Julian Priester), including Hancock on
keyboards, Bennie Maupin on reeds/flute, Billy Hart on drums, Buster Williams on bass, and Dr.
Patrick Gleeson on synthesizers. In addition to playing trumpet, Henderson also does fabulous
work on cornet and flugelhorn.
