Billy Hart – Oshumare


Questo disco è di difficile reperibilità perchè ho il dubbio che non sia stato ristampato, ma dopo tante ricerche sono riuscito ad averlo. E’ un disco particolare, quasi jazz ma passa alla fusion in certi momenti, sicuramente la lunga ricerca è stata premiata soprattutto per il brano Chance.
