Herbie Hancock: Takin' Off (CD: Blue Note RVG)Herbie Hancock: Takin' Off (CD: Blue Note RVG)
A conventional bop album on the surface but with some deeper undercurrents. Hancock's debut as leader drew together an impressive and inspired outfit which featured a resurgent Dexter Gordon playing better than ever and trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. Comprising totally of Hancock originals, the gospellish groove of the opening 'Watermelon Man' and the thoughtful 'Alone Am I' are early reminders of his prowess, both as compser and pianist.

Herbie Hancock: Maiden Voyage (CD: Blue Note RVG)
Like its other impressionistic Blue Note brother from 1964, 'Empyrean Isles', this jazz seascape is a 'Maiden Voyage' on largely tranquil waters. Dreamy and spacious, Hancock's conception is one of great beauty and refinement, and his playing is some of the most sublimely phrased in all of jazz. Freddie Hubbard too, is in startlingly inventive form and the rest of the band, which belonged to Miles Davis at the time, surpass themselves, notably George Coleman's tenor which is heard at its finest on this record.

Herbie Hancock: Empyrean Isles (CD: Blue Note RVG)
With the same band as 'Maiden Voyage' minus George Coleman, this is the original album from whence 'Cantaloupe (Island)' came, Hancock's funky groove with a sassy cornet solo of Freddie Hubbard. Come here after your maiden voyage and enjoy the island, its freedom, its beauty. An inspired concept album of masterful invention and simplicity.

Herbie Hancock: Mwandishi (CD: Warner Bros)
Formed in 1969, the ‘Mwandishi Sextet’ was one of the most exciting, forward-looking jazz groups of the era. New, radical and unlike anything Herbie Hancock had done before, ‘Mwandishi’ features a unique blend of suavely blended horns and fluid rhythms before Hancock’s improvisations on electric keyboards. (Warner Jazz).
