Herbie Hancock – Headhunters

herbie-and-mwandish

Contagious and legendary! It’s the twelfth studio album by American jazz musician Herbie Hancock, released in October 13, 1973 for Columbia Records. It’s a key release in Hancock’s career and a defining moment in the genre of jazz funk.  Enjoy!

“I began to feel that I had been spending so much time exploring the upper atmosphere of music and the more ethereal kind of far-out spacey stuff. Now there was this need to take some more of the earth and to feel a little more tethered; a connection to the earth….I was beginning to feel that we (the sextet) were playing this heavy kind of music, and I was tired of everything being heavy. I wanted to play something lighter.”                                         (Hancock’s sleeve notes)

  3. Headhunters is an AMAZING album. “Chameleon” is my all-time favorite track. It is a transcendent sensation.
