Herbie Hancock: Head Hunters (CD: Columbia)
Very funky, very electric, very 70s. Directed at the charts and disco market, synth-full "Headhunters" (1973) is the archetypal jazz-funk album. Despite its evident commercialism, pianist Hancock offers extensive rhythmic interplay, compelling and catchy tunes, and and not a little jazz improvisation. "Chameleon" and "Watermelon Man" (reworking Hancock's 1963 classic) offer most interest in their simple harmonic schemes and contrasting rhythmic sophistication. Lots of keyboards, synthesizers and swirling percussion. The best-selling jazz album in history and part of jazz's accumulated repertoire. Collector's recommendation. (Andrew Clark, Editor, Riffs & Choruses: A New Jazz Anthology. Continuum Publishing.)

Herbie Hancock: Mr Hands (CD: Columbia)Herbie Hancock: Mr Hands (CD: Columbia)
Jazz crosses over into funk and disco, with predictably "pop" results. Hancock's own keyboard and compositional skills are put to effective service in some catchy, riff-like melodies, weighted with synthesizers and electronic amplification. Tune-titles like "Spiraling Prism," "Shiftless Shuffle" and "Textures" convey the structural dynamic behind Hancock's approach---and insistently rhythmic feel of the music. Would suit a retro-jazz disco party, played very loud. (Andrew Clark, Editor, Riffs & Choruses: A New Jazz Anthology. Continuum Publishing.)
