Somewhere in between his high profile stint with Miles Davis and the formation of his experimental Sextet, Herbie Hancock found time to record this beautiful documentation of what an incredible piano player he had become. It tends to be relaxed and 60s cool, but at the same time intelligently abstract. This was recorded in 1968 for Blue Note, before Herbie decided to dive headlong into electronic keyboards and his piano playing is exquisite. As usual, his soft touch is used to full expression on these dreamy pastel like tunes. Perfect.
