Stuart explores Herbie Hancock’s electronics-heavy free jazz group Mwandishi's self-titled landmark album from 1971. Plus, prog rock, West African folk music and harp arrangements.

Stuart explores the legendary jazz pianist Herbie Hancock’s electronics-heavy free jazz group Mwandishi's self titled landmark album from 1971. An early example of musical afro futurism and made up of just three long form tracks, the album fuses jazz together with rock, contemporary classical music, synthesizer experimentation, African textures as well as group improvisation.

Plus, whimsical prog rock, nature-inspired West African folk music, dreamy harp arrangements as well as moody urban electronics from Hatfield & The North, Mary Lattimore, Slotek plus more.
