LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

An overlooked little gem in Herbie Hancock's 70s catalog – and a sweet set of funky tunes that adds an R&B edge to the Headhunters sound! Herbie's playing a heck of a lot of keys on the set – from Arp to moog to Rhodes, and everything in between – but the album never gets too crazy, and has a really nice laidback soulful approach that grooves along wonderfully on a small number of very extended tunes! Other players include Headhunters stalwarts Paul Jackson on bass, Bennie Maupin on reeds, Patrick Gleeson on electronics, and Bill Summers on drums – and Herbie does some cool singing through the keyboards in a spacey voice that's really great! Titles include "Good Question", "Sunlight", "Come Running To Me", "I Thought It Was You", and "No Means Yes". (Includes the printed inner sleeve.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Lite Me Up
CBS, 1982. Very Good
This one was cut just before Herbie lucked onto the Rockit/Bill Laswell strategy – and shows how much he was searching around for a style in those immediate pre-electro years.

Sun Goddess
Columbia, 1974. Very Good
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mr Gone
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
A great late 70s set from Weather Report – a record that's certainly got more polish than the early years, but which still sounds plenty darn great to our ears – thanks to a really free-flowing sense of imagination! The tunes here have a wonderfully chunky sort of approach to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1959. Very Good
A unique large group effort from Thelonious Monk – but one that bristles with all the angular energy of his other great work for Riverside! The group here is a tentet – filled with excellent players who include Donald Byrd, Phil Woods, Pepper Adams, Eddie Bert, Robert Northern, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
