A neat summary of 60s work,
By A Customer
This review is from: Cantaloupe Island (Audio CD)
This formidable recording neatly summarises Herbie Hancock's work in the 60s. The title track, Cantaloupe Island, provided inspiration for US3, who sampled it heavily. Herbie's piano skills are matched by some exemplary trumpet work in Cantaloupe and Watermelon Man. Although this is a compilation, the album sits together well and provides some easily listening blues. Accompany with smoky room and bottle of red.
