Head Hunters

2009 UK/EU exclusively remastered limited edition 4-track LP pressed on 180-gram audiophile vinyl.

The all-time classic album first released in 1973, including Chameleon, an updated Watermelon Man and the jazz-dancer’s favourite, Sly!

Head Hunters (1973) was the first offering of Herbie’s new backing band,the Head Hunters. In his own words: “I began to feel that I had been spending so much time exploring the upper atmosphere of music and the more ethereal kind of far-out spacey stuff. Now there was this need to take some more of the earth and to feel a little more tethered; a connection to the earth….I was beginning to feel that we (the sextet) were playing this heavy kind of music, and I was tired of everything being heavy. I wanted to play something lighter.”

This is one of Herbie’s funkiest records and one of the best selling albums in Jazz, due to the fact it appealed to a broad audience – think Hip Hop, Funk, Soul & Jazz Funk fans. With Head Hunters, Hancock claims a stake in Jazz with his infectuous synthesizers and clavinet melodies on top of a supertight groove, augmented by subtile horn soloing. Classic songs such as ‘Chameleon and ‘Watermelon Man’ are living proof of his genius and ability to craft a coherent jazz fusion album. Special mention for drummer Harvey Mason, bassist Paul Jackson and reedist Bernie Maupin (who also contributed to Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew).
