This was my very first Bobby Hutcherson post here at OIR back in may 2006.It was ripped from vinyl @192 in those days-I've reupped it @320 this time and ripped it from the Mosaic Select box set.Here's my original narrative:

Cirrus finds Bobby Hutcherson resuming his partnership with tenor saxophonist Harold Land, and the results are marvellous. The pair work with pianist Bill Henderson, trumpeter Woody Shaw, bassist Ray Drummond, drummer Larry Hancock, saxophonist/flautist Emmanuel Boyd and percussionist Kenneth Nash on this set of originals.The album starts with a great version of Woody Shaw's "Rosewood" while the rest of the set is written by Hutcherson and includes "Even Later".Highlight of the lp for me is the atmospheric and brooding "Zuri Dance" - what a corker !

Great stuff. Any chance of re-upping the other earlier Harold Land stuff with Hutcherson. I was unaware of your blog way back then.

I have two live shows they did in '69 , as well as Peacemaker and Choma--these guys were magic together.

Thanks for upping the magic.

Any chance you could re-up this? Very sorry to have slept on it the first time around ...
