Herbie HANCOCK Thrust CD
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

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!
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.
