Jazz-Funk Par-Excellence!

These live cuts, recorded by Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters in concert in Japan in 1975, have hitherto been only available as an expensive CD import. Vinyl copies are also known to fetch over Fifty British pounds too, so this is most definitely a fantastic release through Itunes. Those familiar with the "Headhunters" and "Thrust" albums will recognise the repertoire, but hearing the music performed live is a treat. This is prime Jazz-Funk and for the price is an absolute steal, but unlike some "fusion" the music is never plodding or too indulgent. The band's rhythmic interplay is phenomenal (respect due to Paul Jackson for some incredible bass playing), and there is plenty of light and shade in terms of dynamics and mood in the music (Herbie moving from Rhodes to Arp Synth during the course of a single piece in the exquisite ballad "Butterfly" for instance). It sounded like the concerts were lapped up by the Japanese audience and I think after hearing these cuts you'll do likewise. If there's more "in the vaults" from this band then surely Herbie fans everywhere would love to hear it. In the meantime, get this. Almost makes you want to buy a Fender Rhodes...

Though grounded in Bill Evans and able to absorb blues, funk, gospel,...
