Comments:  Wasn't able to properly sit through "Rain Dance" and "Hornets"- very experimental- but Hidden Shadows is absolute genius!
A loping 6/8, 5/8, 8/8 sequence is jammed over, whilst layers of Clav, Rhodes, ARP and other synths swoosh and sweep about and Bennie Maupin's horn section get harmonic in the wings. Tasty!!

Compared to later Herbie-CDs , this early one can be seen as pretty freaky and experimental , and in the use of bassclarinet and echoed trumpets , reminiscent of sounds that Miles Davis explored on Bitches Brew. Unlike Bitches Brew it has experimental synthsounds on it .
