3 stars This album, taken from two different concerts in 1973, is basically two songs. Side one of the LP contains two different recordings of Hornets, a Miles Davis-like piece, where the band riffs in a fairly simple, maybe even too simplistic jazz-funk riff, whild Herbie Hancock does some wild soloing on an electric piano. The piece is good, but with only one riff throughout, it does tend to get tedious if you try to listen to anything other than Hancock.

The second side, containing only Gibraltar, is more of a band piece, and more entertaining. Here, the rest of the band gets to stretch out as well. Jack DeJohnette shows why he became one of the premiere jazz drummers, Stanley Turrentine and Freddie Hubbard play some crazy good solos on their horns, and of course, Hancock, on the official keyboard of seventies fusion, the Fender Rhodes.

3 stars.
