SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin
5 stars Somewhere in between his high profile stint with Miles Davis and the formation of his experimental Sextet, Herbie Hancock found time to record this beautiful documentation of what an incredible piano player he had become. I love the music on here, it tends to be relaxed and 60s cool, but at the same time very abstract and intellectual, it is the ultimate in pre-hippie hipster music, lounge music for the swinger who has Sarte on his coffee table instead of Playboy. This was recorded before Herbie decided to dive headlong into electronic keyboards and his piano playing is exquisite. As usual, his harmonies fall somewhere between Debussy and Bill Evans, and his soft touch is used to full expression on these dreamy pastel like tunes.

Although most of the tunes on here fit the previously described laid back mood, a couple tunes break the mold a bit. Album opener Riot is a bit agitated and features a fairly strong piano solo, but not as strong as the song title might suggest. The Ron Carter penned First Trip is a throwback to Hancock's early 60s bluesy hard bop roots, but most everything else on here maintains a more impressionistic tone.

Although there are three horn players on here, none of them ever solo, instead they orchestrate the melody and occasionally add color to Herbie's tonal explorations. The arrangements used with this small ensemble are incredible, somehow Hancock uses clever voicings to make them sound like a small orchestra. Scoring for this threesome will pay off for Hancock when he hires a similar horn section for his Sextet and combines his sense of orchestration with electronics for an even larger tonal palette.

If you like really good piano playing, and who doesn't, Herbie is at the peak of his game here. His inventive chord substitutions, lush harmonies, precise rhythms and ability to focus and build long solos put him at the very top in the world of jazz fusion and progressive rock pianists. This album is one of a kind, abstract futuristic lounge music for hipsters in any era, even ones still to come.

4 stars Late 60-s and one of the last Herbie's post-bop album. He played with Miles Davis for some years yet, so he 'd bring some relaxed atmosphere, melodic compositions, but quite complex piano under the skin.

All the musicians on support are competent, and build a great back-up sound to Hancock piano, but generally it's his album. Possibly, still a bit conservative for late 60-s, but great example of Hancock piano playing.

Pleasant, quality and interesting album, still with no traces of even early jazz fusion though. Great album for jazz (post-bop) lovers, everyone expecting Hancock unique experimental fusion works should search for a bit later releases.
