    • Herbie Hancock – Rain Dance
    • 1. Rain Dance
    • 2. Hidden Shadows
    • 3. Hornets

    '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.
