Man in the Mirror
on 9 August 2015
Made up of three very different songs, “Obstinate” which is very rhythmic, a bit of an Africa influence, “You’ll know when..” a pretty melody, with a funky bass riff (would not have looked out of place on Miles Davis “Filles De Kilimanjaro” or “In a Silent way”).
The final track “Wandering..” is written by Herbie’s trombone player Julian Priester, but does lumber on a bit, without really arriving anywhere.
So on the whole quite an accessible record with jagged edges smooth right down.
