Herbie Hancock – Head Hunters

herbie_hancock_head_hunters

US Jazz master, Herbie Hancock dropped Head Hunters in 1973 as his twelfth studio album. Forming a new band for the occasion, it featured a tight rhythm and blues orientated rhythm section and saw him opt out of guitar altogether, replacing it with clavinet, a defining sound on the album.

Comprising of four tracks Chameleon, Watermelon Man, Sly and Vein Melter, it’s regarded as a spearhead album in the Jazz-Funk-Fusion genre and has been added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress as a ‘culturally, historically or aesthetically important’ sound recording of the 20th century.

Crazy album with a crazy cover to boot, here in the felt pen style.
