Blue Note Records 75th Anniversary Vinyl Initiative pressing of Herbie Hancock's Jazz classic. Fourth studio album from the maestro himself with a TIGHT roster showing up for possibly one of the purest Jazz albums to exist. Ron Carter on bass, Freddie Hubbard on Cornet, Anthony Williams on drums, and of course mr. Hancock on piano duties. Written and arranged by HH, the album was produced to sound improvised than ensemble melodies. The album also features two of his most famous cuts 'One Finger Snap' and 'Cantaloupe Island', the latter being famously sampled by US3 in the early 90s. Four cuts in total with more swing than Babe Ruth.
