GOJR 100

29 herbie hancock ma216866This album finds Herbie Hancock at a creative peak. In fact, some would say it's arguably his finest record of the '60s, reaching a perfect balance between accessible, lyrical jazz and chance-taking hard bop. Herbie Hancock is joined by Freddie Hubbard, George Coleman, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. The quintet plays a selection of five Hancock originals, many of which are simply superb showcases for the group's provocative, unpredictable solos, tonal textures and harmonies.
