I have nothing to do with this other than I'm really excited for it.

Herbie Hancock is good? I've heard a little bit, but $349 is a lot.

Where should I start? Why is he amazing?

Hi

Taste, technique, originality, versatility would be a few of the words I'd use to say why.... he is one of the giants of Jazz Piano, but who also did a lot with electric keyboards and synths as well.

He's done such a lot in his career that it's very difficult to pick one era, let alone one album. But as a leader, his 1960s albums, and particularly for me, Maiden Voyage and Empyrean Isles are both great acoustic Jazz albums. However if you prefer a more electric funk stew the 1970s Head Hunters album is a classic.

More modern, and perhaps more commercial recordings that I particularly like are his Gershwin album and River The Joni Letters.

And that's without mentioning his great work with Miles Davis, which I now have!

Cheers

^What Simon said.

I can understand not diving in for $350 if you aren't familiar, but at a minimum, go stream Maiden Voyage.

Herbie is one of a couple of greatest piano players ever of any genre. I'm not into vinyl anymore but would be worth getting a turntable just to get this collection. Herbie is also one of the great musicians who shares everything he knows and helps others. Even though he just turned 81 he still exploring sounds, music, and musicians.
