Editorial Reviews

On the heels of the recent Droppin' Science compilation, and to the delight of crate-diggers everywhere, come these treasures from deep in the Blue Note vaults. The artists featured here created soulful, and funkified sounds that decades later became the source of grooves, vamps, and beats for today's most heralded DJs and hip-hop producers, from Jay-Z to Beastie Boys to The Roots....On Heritage, Trumpeter Eddie Henderson beamed the hard bop vocabulary of Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard up to a sleek, space-age frontier, prefiguring the nu-jazz movement with his innovative use of effects and electronics. This is the album with the revelatory "Inside You," a future funk-DJ favorite which has been often sampled, most famously by Jay-Z for "Coming of Age" on his renowned debut album Reasonable Doubt.

Format: Audio CD
A really good album, I have no idea why it's out of print. Contain's Herbie Hancock's rythym section from Headhunters- Mike Clark and Paul Jackson. Mtume from Miles' band plays percussion. Patrice Rushen plays boards and synths, while Julian Priester (from Herbie and Eddie's Mwandishi days) and Hadley Caliman round out the horns. Some of this material borders on Cheese, but no more than Watermelon Man or Chameleon from the original Headhunters album. The drums and bass are super tight, while Eddie's playing is very much like Miles', only with some stronger chops. Rythmically dense but unbelievably smooth and tight. Would be great to sample if you could get it on Vinyl. Is great to listen to in any format.

I'd noticed the name "Eddie Henderson" while flipping through the CD racks many years ago, but I never paid much notice and never listened to anything that he recorded. But I saw this CD at a local shop a few months back and my eyes zeroed in on the "Blue Note Rare Grooves Series" notation on the CD spine. Say no more; I need to listen to this! I've liked everything that I've heard in the "Rare Grooves" series thus far, so my expectations were high. Well, this isn't quite what I expected, but I'm definitely not disappointed. Very interesting, intriguing, atmospheric music on this album. The most notable aspect, for me, is that it isn't nearly as funky or full of "grooves" like other albums in the series. Obviously, the crate diggers found something to like on here, but to my ears, it doesn't sound like a goldmine for those looking for funky notes to sample. I think this music fits into more of a fusion category, similar to what Weather Report and Herbie Hancock --- and yes, even Miles Davis --- were doing in the 70s. Some spacey, electronic passages with Henderson's trumpet and flugelhorn floating along for the ride. Really cool effect. This is the sort of music that wouldn't sound out of place as a film soundtrack, the way it creates moods with textures and layers of sound. But It's not traditional jazz, and it's not really soul-jazz or funk either. But why worry about such trivial matters at categories; just put this on and enjoy the sounds. Extremely well played.

Heritage was recorded in April 1976 by, basically, the same core of musicians who had been playing with Eddie Henderson on his solo albums since Realization in 1973. On each subsequent album, they seem to ease on the sheer experimentation they were more than capable of creating and focus on clean grooves which would blend funk and jazz. By the time they recorded Heritage, they had matured their sound to perfection, and by that I mean they managed to cut superbly precise music with feeling and taste.

This Blue Note reissue brings it all back home with a great, warm sound although I wouldn't say the thin booklet with its diffuse liner notes are all that great. I suppose greater care could've been taken to try and reproduce the original feel of the artwork as well. But that's a minor quibble anyway because Heritage is a polished sounding affair that can take the listener on a significant journey through meditative funky jazz fusion waters that will need revisiting from time to time.

So, cutting it short, if you dig that mid-seventies period of music for instance Miles Davis, Weather Report or Herbie Hancock produced, you'll most likely dig this one too. It's that good and deserves to be more appreciated.
