Album Notes

THE HERBIE HANCOCK BOX includes a 56 page booklet.

This four-disc box set documents Herbie Hancock's recorded career during the 1970s and '80s, and contains nearly all of the pianist's most famous compositions. However, this collection is not just about greatest hits. Project director Seth Rothstein dug deep into the Hancock archives to create a release that also has great variety and character.

For example, the first disc begins with a nearly five-minute free-form improvisation from Hancock on electric piano. And even the well-known "Maiden Voyage" receives a completely different treatment here. Taken from a live concert in New York City, the track features Hancock and company turning this once understated and spacey modal jam into a fiery musical odyssey. "Domo" is another scorching live cut that boasts bold improvisations from saxophonist Wayne Shorter, trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, and Hancock himself, all anchored by drummer Tony Williams, who drives the group with bombastic irreverence. THE HERBIE HANCOCK BOX also presents Hancock's forays into electronic dance music, the most obvious inclusion being "Rockit," his early-'80s radio hit. This funky piece adds an intriguing counterpoint to this collection. However, Hancock's jazz material remains his true legacy.
