    Herbie HancockThe Herbie Hancock TrioGet On Down

    This 1977 studio recording finds Herbie Hancock embracing his jazz roots. The straightforward trio setting puts Hancock’s piano front and center. Backed by Ron Carter on bass and Tony Williams behind the drums, the recording features Hancock originals as well as the Trio’s take on Miles Davis’ 'Milestones'.

    Though recorded at fabled San Francisco studio The Automatt, the recording was only immediately issued in Japan. To this day Japan is the only country to see a vinyl release of this session - until now!

      Herbie HancockSextant (1972)Columbia

      'Sextant' from 1972 was recorded just before 'Headhunters', and can be seen in the same vein, but it's more than just an introduction to a masterpiece. It features a kind of post-modal, free impressionism while gracing the edges of funk. Three long instrumental tracks explore how far minimalism in jazz can go.

      Herbie HancockTakin' Off (1962)Blue Note

      Herbie Hancock's debut album in 1962 launched a phenomenal career. Features Freddie Hubbard and Dexter Gordon and includes the seminal 'Watermelon Man".

      • – watermelon man
      Herbie HancockCantaloupe Island Blue Note

      This formidable recording neatly summarises Herbie Hancock's work in the 60s. The title track, Cantaloupe Island, provided inspiration for US3, who sampled it heavily. Herbie's piano skills are matched by some exemplary trumpet work on Cantaloupe and Watermelon Man.

      THIS IS A VERY GOOD REPRESENTATION OF HERBIES BLUE NOTE WORK, IF YOU
      DONT WANT TO PLOUGH THROUGH HIS WHOLE ALBUMS OF THIS PERIOD.
      MAIDEN VOYAGE, CANTALOUPE ISLAND AND WATERMELON MAN ARE ALL HERE.
      RECOMMENDED. A GOOD BUY.

                                                Soul Jazz Records presents Eddie RussFresh Out (1974)Soul Jazz Records

                                                Soul Jazz Records are re-releasing keyboardist Eddie Russ’s seminal debut deep jazz LP Fresh Out (and the first album ever released on Soul Jazz Records!) in a new limited edition COLOURED vinyl 1000 copies worldwide (+ free download code) and new CD edition.

                                                Eddie Russ's Fresh Out was independently released in Detroit in 1974 and has remained a collector's item ever since. Russ was an important figure to emerge from the vibrant underground jazz scene that thrived in Detroit in the early 1970s, existing in the cultural and economic desolation of the city after the departure of Motown in the late 1960s.

                                                This scene included the musical collective Tribe (including members Wendell Harrison, Marcus Belgrave, Phil Ranelin, Harold McKinney and Doug Hammond) and Kenny Cox’s Strata Records. Eddie Russ’s Fresh Out was first released in 1974 on the independent Jazz Masters record label.

                                                As well as including the classic jazz dance cut The Lope Song, Eddie Russ’s Fresh Out featured the debut of the group The Mixed Bag who subsequently recorded for both Tribe and Strata Records. Eddie Russ released two further classic jazz funk albums in the late 1970s, See the Light and Take a Look at Yourself.
