Mr. Hancock.
He is the one who released my favourite jazz album.

Sur tant de mers, tant de planchers,

While I intended this as poll for people to vote who know both, but should have been more explicit about that, I appreciate your honesty and know that it is common no matter how explicit you are that there are those who will vote even if one explicitly asks people to only vote if they are reasonably familiar with both options.  I love Robert Wyatt's music, by the way.  Still, one of the reasons I do polls, since I don't really care about results, care far more about people's comments, is to increase exposure (though Hancock is well-known in these parts, I know there are those that don't really know him).

I would recommend Crossings and Sextant to start with (called "Mwandishi" albums-- those were revelatory albums for me which lead me to explore many albums by the Mwandishi players (Eddie Henderson's Realization, Julian Priester's Love, Love etc.).


4.77 | 15 ratings
Crossings
1972
4.52 | 16 ratings
Sextant
1973

Youtube has various vids of his music (unfortunately, nothing of the amazing Crossings, but it's better to be immersed in the albums).  Here's the first track off Sextant:

Herbie is more versatile, has played longer at the top and is able to play in ensemble fashion. Which puts him three up on Mr. Emerson.

I'vet yet have to find an album with Emerson I like, and I do like some Herbie material like Crossings and ofcourse the classic Headhunters.
