Hard to track down bit of fusion from Bennie Maupin cut for Mercury in 1977.Pat Gleeson is featured on synthesizers and Onaje Allen Gumbs as conductor and arranger.Here's a review I lifted from Boom Ping Ping:
On 1977's excellent Slow Traffic to the Right,
Bennie Maupin takes comparatively contemporary looks at his pair of contributions to Herbie Hancock's Crossings and is joined by two fellow and key vets of that session: Eddie Henderson and Dr. Pat Gleeson. (Also on board: Patrice Rushen, Blackbird McKnight, Ralph Armstrong.) A barely recognizable "Water Torture" is tightened from 14 to five minutes, anchored by a pliant rhythm. "Quasar," the finale, isn't as drastically overhauled but is made to sound more like a theme. Much of this is due to the change in Gleeson's role. On Crossings, his synthesizer interjections are delivered as effect-like enhancements; here, his machines hurl a vein-melting crescendo of synthesized strings that double with actual strings. Like Maupin's other two '70s albums, Jewel in the Lotus (ECM) and Moondreams (Mercury), Slow Traffic to the Right has never been released on CD.
Ripped from the original vinyl at 320.
