2 stars Hancock's Sextant could best be described as Herbie going to the extremes. I mean, if you think Crossings was as far as he could go in extravaganza then you'd better check out Sextant as well (that is if you don't know it yet of course). On Crossings there was quite an amount of music to be enjoyed all in all but with this successor it's only Hidden Shadows that provides some main stream jazz, the rest is sheer (jazz) prog. Avant prog with lots of experimentation one might say.

With Crossings I managed to squeeze out a four star rating in the end but Sextant is a step too far in the "overdoing" aspect as far as I'm concerned. Or as Robert (Epignosis) already stated: it's not always enjoyable. Unless avant jazzprog is totally your fav cup of tea of course ....
