Herbie is awesome. I knew someone who was accepted to the Monk Institute and got to play with Herbie. He said that their "Improv. and theory class" was a private gig with Herbie! thats sick. I personally liked him best on Maiden Voyage, Head Hunters, V.S.O.P (probably one of my most favorite album collabs.) Perfect Machine, Mr. Hands, and 1+1 which had WAYNE SHORTER on it. Great Music.

Head Hunters is one of my favourite non-experimental jazz albums of all time.

What instrument does your friend play?

He plays guitar. he said it was probably the most nerve-wrecking experience EVER. But it certainly was worth it

I've never heard a complete album from him (yeah, I know I should), but, hell, Cantalupe Island is one of the best jamming songs that I've heard!! I actually find very funny to play and, of course, improvise over it, great!

Sextant and Crossings are two of my favorite albums. Every album I have from mid - sixties to 72-73 (solo or other) are fantastic.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

I have two albums- 'Sextant' and 'Headhunters'. Very much enjoy both; the first utilises electronics to excellent effect and the second is funkier, whilst still using the electronics but arguably to slightly more accessible effect.

To appreciate Herbie Hancock as a gifted solo artist this is the only album you need to listen to:

Its brilliant, of course. But of those early albums I choose this one:

I think prog-rockers would like Crossings, very psychedelic with lots of electronics and effects as well as some Melllotron too.
