‘Crossings’ hails from 1972 and was the second recording by Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi group. The twenty-five minute ‘Sleeping Giant’ is an expansive and experimental slice of Jazz Fusion that weaves powerfully across several musical landscapes. ‘Quasar’ is marginally less heavy, whilst ‘Water Torture’ again reflects a multitude of musical styles. By ‘Crossings’, Herbie was developing a greater affinity with the electronic keyboards he was predominately using.
