Product Description

One of the most beautiful and unusual albums in Herbie Hancock's vast discography, this 1968 set features a trio with Ron Carter and Mickey Roker supported by an unusual horn section (Thad Jones on fluegelhorn, Peter Phillips on bass trombone and Jerry Dodgion on alto flute) that does not solo but provides inventive Gil Evans-inspired voicings. Miles Davis had recorded two of these tunes ("Riot" and "The Sorcerer") the previous year, but they take on a whole different approach here. Three alternate takes, previously available only in a Hancock box set, are included on the gorgeous Van Gelder remaster.

* bonus tracks, not part of the original LP

Recorded on March 6 (#1-3, 7, 8) and March 9 (#4-6, 9), 1968 at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey

THAD JONES, fluegelhorn; PETER PHILLIPS, bass trombone; JERRY DODGION, alto flute; HERBIE HANCOCK, piano; RON CARTER, bass; MICKEY ROKER, drums

Recorded three years after his groundbreaking Maiden Voyage LP, this 1968 date features the pianist/composer leading a trio which includes his Miles Davis bandmate, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Mickey Roker, augmented by a three-piece horn section featuring alto flute, bass trombone, and Thad Jones on flugelhorn. This unique configuration was inspired by the orchestral timbres of Gil Evans's voicings, filtered through a 1960s syncopated perspective. Remastered by the original session engineer, Rudy Van Gelder, Hancock's percussive, yet flowing pianisms are more detailed in front of the evocative woodwind arrangements. Several jazz standards flowed from this date. The maze-like "Riot" and "The Sorcerer" were both recorded by Davis--as well as the dreamy bossa nova title track. Hancock plays with his patented style of "controlled freedom," and this LP paved the way for his future forays in modern music. --Eugene Holley, Jr.
