Eddie Henderson: Scorpio Libra

Sunday Jazz Continues…checking out this Eddie Henderson cut Scorpio Libra from his Realization album…this is his first album..after playing as a sideman with Herbie Hancock‘s the Mwandishi group. Mwandishi was Hancock’s Swahili name.

This group consisted of the following members..with their Swahili names;
