Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. New thing meets funk on this rare session from 1967 with Grachan Moncur III. The title track 'Hipnosis' is a snake charmer kind of vamp that is an excellent showcase for both the rhythm section and the soloists. Of particular note is the way drummer Higgins and pianist Lamont Johnson interweave the basket out of which emerge the serpentine horn lines of Jackie and Grachan. Some might call this a super sophisticated "Sidewinder". One of McLean's most accomplished works of the 60's.
