Amazing, timeless album,
By A Customer
This review is from: Head Hunters (Audio CD)
This album has an absolutely timeless quality to it for several reasons. The playing of Herbie and the band is nothing short of exhilarating- the improvisation, intensity and sheer funkiness of every piece shining through. The opening track "Chameleon" has got to be one of the most satisfying openers ever. It builds from its simple funky opening into its later mood changes with sharp electronic, pulsing keyboards and earthy rhythms. My other fave piece (even though they're all good) is "Sly" as it is the most ambitious of all the tracks in terms of tempo shifts and group playing- has a mind boggling crescendo. This is jazz which is reaching the boundaries.
