Eddie Henderson - Mahal

Mahal from '78 include the fantastic up-tempo version of Herbie Hancock's Butterfly featuring the man himself on keyboards, along with most of the Headhunters. This album also includes another jazz-funk favorite, Prance On and Amoroso, a beautiful mid-temp track which illustrates Eddie's trumpet playing. Another track from this album Cyclops became a club hit at the time with some DJ's playing it at 45 RPM instead of 33!!

1. Butterfly
2. Cyclops
3. Emotions
4. Prance On
6. Mahal
7. Ecstasy
