Herb Alpert & Hugh Masekela: Happy Hanna [1978]

written by Hotep Cecil Barnard and Caiphus Semenya

from the album Herb Alpert/Hugh Masekela

This song is dedicated to my lady, who is sadly out of town at the moment. I grabbed this record yesterday at the smooth jazz treasure trove that is Broadway between 72nd and 73rd, and this track and its title instantly reminded me of her.

The guitar at the 1:39 mark is beautiful; too bad dude only got 4 bars.

I could see Phish covering this when they reunite in 2011.

Is that Pedro Martinez?

Y aurait-il possibilité pour un collectionneur de musique de connaitre le timing de chacun des 7 titres de cet album précis.

D'avance merci
