Artist: Bojan Z
Piece: The Mohican and the Great Spirit
The use of the electric piano, with the bass as the melodic instrument, gives a totally different feeling from the original to this lesser known Horace Silver tune.
Bojan Z soon switches to the acoustic piano and takes the leading voice as the drums join in.
During his solo he builds a relaxed, funky mood while the bass plays a repetitive vamp and the interaction between the three instruments contributes to a very personal group sound that makes one wonder why there are so few covers of this tune.
