Classic Trax – Herbie HancockChameleon

“Herbie Hancock is an American pianist, keyboardist, bandleader and composer as part of Miles Davis’s Second Great Quintet, Hancock helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the “post-bop” sound. He was one of the first jazz musicians to embrace music synthesizers and funk music (characterized by syncopated drum beats) The piece’s signature funky bass line was played by Hancock on an ARP Odyssey, as was one of the keyboard solos. The other keyboard solo was played on a Fender/Rhodes piano. (B♭m7 and E♭7 Dorian). Can anyone deny the pocket on his compositions or be floored by all the varying sounds that all work as one part of his sound? A true pioneer at work and a staple of some of my afternoon jams on vinyl!”
