Herbie Hancock — Speak Like A Child (RVG remaster edition) ... CD 5.99

A very sweet, and oft-overlooked session that has Herbie mixing a nice dose of lyricism into his usual soul jazz approach from the 60s! The sound's a bit farther-reaching than on some of Herbie's smaller group sessions – and the record features a sextet that includes Ron Carter, Mickey Roker, Jerry Dodgion, Thad Jones, and Peter Phillips – all soaring with the warmth and introspection that was showing up in some of the best Blue Notes from the time. The harder-hitting soul jazz riffs and hooks are nicely replaced by more thoughtful lines that get a bit deeper, soufully – and nearly all tracks on the set are originals by Hancock! The album's filled with great moments – and tracks include "The Sorcerer", "Riot", and "Goodbye To Childhood". (Liberty pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has light wear, a bit of aging, and unglued top and bottom seams.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note, 1970. Very Good-
