herbie-hancocks-famous-head-hunters-rediscovered-on-the-vinyl-factorys-roots-branchesHead Hunters was a pivotal point in Herbie Hancock's career, bringing him into the vanguard of jazz fusion. Hancock had pushed avant-garde boundaries on earlier albums, and with his band the Headhunters he developed a deeply funky album with all the sensibilities of jazz. Although he experienced the usual scorn from the purists he produced an album that sounded fresh and vibrant. Featured musicians include Bennie Maupin, Paul Jackson, Bill Summers and Harvey Mason.
