Hancock's Secrets is in the pocket.
on 4 August 2001
Secrets may be one of Hancocks lesser known albums but it delivers the goods in a typically funky fashion. From the opening track, 'Doin it', to the cookin 'Swamp Rat', this album burns like the best of Hancocks funk/fusion offerings. The album contains great variety and is rewarding to those who are patient enough to allow the music to wash over them, with repeated listenings. The rhythm section is particularly tight and 'in the pocket' here, and the beautifully dreamy track, titled 'People Music', is reminiscent of 'Butterfly' from the mighty Thrust album. This album truly is a must have for any serious Herbie fan, or any funk fan for that matter.
