Product Description

Herbie HANCOCK Thrust CD

Amazon.co.uk

Freshly remastered and reissued with all its pop and zip enhanced, here is one of the stellar recordings of the jazz-rock fusion era. Underpinning this jumping, multi-rhythmic, fathoms-deep groove music is the percussive power that Herbie Hancock, on squawking, scratching, stuttering, pulsing electronic keyboards, and Paul Jackson on thrumming, wah-wahing bass, add to Mike Clark's straight-up, rock-solid, propulsive drumming. From there, any band member can swoop and dive in celebration of Hancock's vibrant compositions. Bennie Maupin brilliantly deploys several horns in spare, soulful, and otherworldly ways. But listen carefully, too, for the broad palette Hancock employs in lead and comping roles. He augments the streak of Bill Evans melodicism evident in earlier, acoustic years with sustained funk fire and shuddering R&B drive. --Peter Monaghan

This was the followup to 'Head Hunters' and I think it is a better album, it is more focused, more exciting and, yes, more funky! The band are all on top form following the success of their last album and it really shows. Herbie grooves away to his hearts content on the keyboard instruments, Paul Jackson's bass is sooo funky and anyone learning to play the bass could get so much from this guy's style - Check out the last track 'Spank a Lee', Mmmmmmmmm!! - He rates up along side the amazingly brilliant Jaco in my opinion; Bennie Maupin is still in charge of all wind instruments and does a fab job - Check out the flute at the end of 'Actual Proof'. New drummer Mike Clark and Bill Summers are just unbelieveable. The opening track 'Palm Grease' builds up from a cool drum beat courtesy of Mike Clark to a ten minute groove with pumpin' bass, funky clavinet and flowing saxophone. To follow this comes 'Actual Proof', it is fast, furious and funky. The main riff comes about a minute into the piece and is followed with a sweeeeet Fender Rhodes solo from ol' Herbie. It speeds around for another 10 minutes before coming to a close. 'Butterfly' slows things down and we have 11 minutes of chill time. If the rest of the album wasn't, 'Spank-A-Lee' is just pure funk. The bass is speedy and excellent, the drumming is tight and the beat is one you'd dream of being able to play, cool, manic sax and top keyboards from Herbie (as always). If you thought Head Hunters was as funky as things got but you're on the look out for yet more top grooves then this is the album for you. There's no need to say any more - Go out and buy it!

The first 'Headhunters' album really opened my eyes to a whole new world of music, and wanting more, I bought this album, Thrust. I was not to be disappointed. Yet more fat funky bass from the reverential Jackson, more lilting horn solos from Maupin, more breath-takingingly impressive stuff from Herbie on his large arrange of electric pianos, and more roots percussion from the ever present Bill Summers. The one change to the line-up from the first album, Mike Clark, on drums, whose complex cross-rhythms really add another dimension to the album, really slips straight into the band. In short, if you liked Headhunters, this is a whole heap of the same, so BUY IT! You will not be disappointed and soon it will become an indespensible part of your collection.

Thrust's first track Palm Grease opens with Mike Clark's (later Brand X) drums. Bit by bit the whole band joins and they find path to funk groove including Maupin's wah wah tenor and Hancock's electric piano. Amazing track, pure funk! Then follows Actual Proof. Sometimes little complex, but these musicians know what they are doing. Again drum work is so groovy, quite a man this Clark! Maupin's flute adds some kind of lightness, but the funk pulse is all the time there. Butterfly is one of my favourite Sunday mornings songs. Very beautiful, so relaxing. Last track Spank-A-Lee is pure funk. What a way to end your album, it's sure listener will have a big smile in his face!
Thrust is even better than Headhunters. Of course if you love this kind of funk groove you need to have borth albums. It's so refreshing listen these kind of albums. The band really enjoys playing and they certainly had fun time making this!

I have seen Herbie live at the Barbican (best gig ever!!!) and I have been loving Headhunters for a long time now but wasn't sure where to go next so I looked up reviews on Amazon about this CD called Thrust. I went out and bought this CD and it is absolutely fantastic. Herbie maintains the funky, groovy interlocking rhythms that defined other classics such as Fat Albert Rotunda and Headhunters. The first track "Palm Grease"
Immediately dives into the groove with the thumping drums of Mike Clark (who has written an essay inside the liner notes). The different effects Herbie has at his disposal are extraordinary and these kinds of things have helped Herbie develop his restless sense of creativity and more importantly his career. Another awesome element of this album is Bennie Maupin's superb horn-blowing (he even uses a wah-wah) pedal. He was great on Headhunters and he maintains that brilliance here especially on "Spank - a-lee". As said on the back of the CD: Thrust remains a bible of advanced, but still accessible groove playing. If you love Herbie and you love funk then this is THE album for you. Or even if you're looking for a CD that picks up where Headhunters left then BUY THIS CD NOW!! You are guaranteed to love this disc.
