5.0 out of 5 stars Ron Carter"bass playing is perfection 5 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ron Carter is outstanding on this wonderful outing with Herbie Hancock. The final track, "Maiden Voyage", tells you everything.
Note also the same sublime technique on Chet Baker"s "Once upon a
Summertime". Modern bass playing just doesn"t" get any better.
Note the influence on Brian Bomberg playing with Alan Broadbent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Session 20 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A great session from 1997 with Ron Carter and Tony Williams, even if Herbie Hancock is not yet as mature and hence rewarding to listen to. Both Ron Carter, who produced it, and Tony Williams make this a no nonsense date with some exquisite touches. An essential CD for any jazz aficianado.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SMOKIN' HERBIE HANCOCK TRIO 28 Mar 2007
By Brian D. Fitzpatrick - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Herbie Hancock-piano
Ron Carter-bass
Tony Williams-drums

The all-star rhythm section for the former Miles Davis Quintet is represented here in a trio format.These guys came to play,and they pull out all the 'stops' for this session.Herbie presents some original tunes,and a great intepretation of 'Stella by Starlight'.The soloing is over the top.These three always play well together,and it is a real treat to here them in a trio setting.This comes very highly reccomended.Enjoy.Health and happiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Overlooked Classic!!!! 1 Feb 2007
By G. Case - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I've only been listening to this side for a week or two now but man, this is happenin'! Of course its tony williams, ron carter, and herbie hancock. Actually I have spent more time listening to the last three tracks so far. I bought this cd because of the personel and because I was learning "Stella". United blues is super cool but way too short. (I had to replay it like a gizzilion times because it was so much fun) This version of Dolphin Dance is great!

5.0 out of 5 stars ~Brilliant Album, Especially If You Like Great Bass Playing~ 21 April 2012
By Kurt Leith - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hard for me to believe that someone gave this album only 2 stars and referred to Ron Carter's brilliant playing as "noodling"!! However, I do understand the difference between so called "70's bass" and the tendency of this style to stay with the higher pitched range of the instrument as opposed to the heavier sound of say, Charles Mingus or Jimmy Garrison from the 1960's. But Ron Carter sure does a great job with this style of bass playing despite the fact that some people just don't have a taste for it. This album is beautiful, and quite correctly listed as a Ron Carter album. Herbie Hancock's piano playing is excellent, Tony Williams provides a good albeit gentle backdrop on the drums, but the real focus is Ron Carter's superb bass playing, in all of it's gooey grandeur. Ron Carter reeeaaallly shines on this album, his playing is the main focus of the session & every minute of listening time is to that of an acoustic bass virtuoso! Ron Carter on this date does not at all play electric but rather shows off his great chops on a contrabass with a sterling supportive cast. For those who appreciate great bass playing or great jazz, this album is a must have. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could, this is an absolute masterpiece...give it a spin, enjoy & God bless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Three giants 22 Nov 2011
By David S. Bruce - Published on
Verified Purchase
I'm definitely with the "five-star" camp on this one! This is perhaps the most renowned jazz rhythm section of all time, anchoring Miles Davis' classic 1960s quintet, as well as many other desert-island-caliber classics like Hancock's "Maiden Voyage" and "Empyrean Isles". It blows my mind that any Amazon reviewer would feel even remotely qualified to put down Ron Carter's playing on this or any other date. It's like a high school student giving Shakespeare the thumbs down because he didn't enjoy reading Hamlet.

Simply put, this is a reunion of three geniuses. If you don't like it, fine, but don't presume to be in a position to pass judgment on it unless you are a jazz legend of similar stature to these musicians.
