Herbie Hancock - Takin' Off LP
Herbie Hancock's 1962 debut as a leader, Takin' Off, revealed a
composer and pianist able to balance sophistication and
accessibility, with a light and adventurous style, best exemplified
by the spare, funky piano riffing on the very catchy "Watermelon
Man,"- a track which would become his signature. Classic Blue
Note hard bop!
