3 stars Herbie Hancock - Man-Child (1975)

Yet another masterfull jazz/funk record from Herbie Hancock. Those who know of this period in his carreer won't be suprised to hear this a inventive funk album with lot's of nice keyparts by Hancock, the smoothest of basslines and drums and some nice wind instruments. The Surprise is however the addition of the electric guitar. It doesn't play a very essential role and doesn't have a lot of solo's but it makes the musical landscape complete.

I won't discribe all the songs, for they all have the same sound. The variation on this album is a bit too low, but all the tracks by itself are great. Some changes in direction would have been nice though. Also the music doens't really serve the nice coverart very well.

This is the kind of music you want to have for your relaxing evenings and parties. A lot of people will recognise the quality of this music and like it. Somehow this record lacks a real masterpiece to be considered a progressive piece of music. It's perfect funk/jazz though and if you like jazz you should never skip on this one. I myself would recommend the three Smwandi albums over the three Headhunters records, but I like have this one as well. Three stars.
