Herbie Hancock - Maiden Voyage

An impressive line-up here with George Coleman, Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter and Tony Williams helping out Herbie in this 1965 outing.

Before his funkier fusion days, Herbie did some great modal stuff, and this is a prime example. Loads of great ideas from all soloists over the more static harmony make this an interesting listen, and it finds a great balance between intensity and calm.
