Review by Kazuhiro
3 stars "Head Hunters" that Herbie had announced in 1973 took the route of bold Funk and had a big influence on the world of Jazz/Fusion. He has them establish the route of Funk in about three years since the album. It was visited at time from which standard Jazz of Herbie went away a little for the listener. "V.S.O.P. the Quintet" has been born in 1976 when Miles Davis was put in the state of about the retirement. It was important that this group conclude successfully in the New Port Jazz festival in the summer in the world of Jazz. The echo of their activity develops into a very large, worldwide tour. Trio on which Herbie worked by the approach besides the route of Funk is this album within that time frame. At that time, Bass player's Ron Carter and Herbie are said that the company agreed in the shape that both Trio Alubum of the Ron name and Trio Album of this Herbie almost announce to a simultaneous period because it belonged to a separate recording label. It might be valuable because the work of Trio of Herbie doesn't exist so much by contraries at the chance to listen to the performance in his acoustic trio. Performing with the companion from old as Herbie to establish the route of Funk somewhat had room might have been a natural act if the flow at this time was considered. It is possible to look for it from the point to have selected the tune in "Speak Like A Child" in the age of Blue Note. In this tune in Trio, the freewheeling thinking and the inter play of three people are the tastes. The first "Watch It" is a performance where power to demonstrate the technology in Trio enough shut oneself up. The drum of Tony is a tune to which the performance and the idea in Life Time are developed and his individuality appears. The rhythm changes and Ad-Rib by each musician is demonstrated. "Watcha Waitin For" can be satisfied of about standard Jazz. Relaxed feelings of three people will be transmitted to the listener. The fourth "Look" following it can enjoy an original melody of the phrase and Herbie that it has a very fantastic melody and Bass is sweet. "Milestones" performed in the shape presented to Miles at the end is a tune to which the respect to Miles that three people paid appears. When these three people perform, this tune also carries us to their worlds at once. The dash feeling overflows very much and a suitable tune in the end. Their reformative music is expressed by a minimum unit and the magic might not fade away still.
