What are you planning to do when you turn 24? What were you doing? Sitting on your couch, playing video games and loading up the four footer? How about Herbie Hancock? He wrote this music and recorded this record when he was 24. Maybe he smoked a little weed, too. If you are trying to impress someone (like yourself), you are doing pretty well to buy Maiden Voyage. Talking about the music on here is like talking about breathing. Yes, it's good – and there's nothing more to say. It captures 5 virtuosic and brilliant musicians at the height of their powers. If you don't know this, or you don't like it, there's just no words really besides I'm sorry.
