About The Artist
Born in Chicago, Illinois in 1940,
Herbert Hancock showed incredible promise with his musical skills from a young age, as he was even considered to be a child
prodigy in terms of music with his ability to play complicated pieces, such as Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 26 at the age of
only eleven. His skills increased through the years and he continued to pursue his passion of music, eventually releasing
his debut album "Takin' Off" to praise from audiences and critics alike. From there he joined up with Miles Davis in one of
his legendary groups, with whom he helped redefine the rhythm section in jazz groups and helped usher in a new creative force
and foundation for jazz music. While with Davis' group, he also found himself frequently playing as a session artist while
continuing to create and release his own albums. His music was constantly praised, and he has released a wide array of incredible
albums such as "Maiden Voyage", "Empyrean Isles", and so many more.
From the very beginning
of his musical career Herbie Hancock showed great promise, and so it was with his 1962 debut solo album "Takin' Off" that
he showcased his talents as not only a talented musician, but an incredible jazz artist. This album was a success, although
not as large a success as some of his later albums would be, so while it wasn't his biggest and best it did catch the attention
of Miles Davis. Miles Davis ended up personally searching out Herbie so that he could personally invite him into what would
be his Second Great Quintet. This quintet went on to become legendary as the most impressive jazz collections ever, and Hancock's
work in it redefined the jazz rhythm section completely. And so while this album certainly wasn't his most successful, it
was the first that caught the attention of many, Miles Davis included.
