Recordings from the original mater tape

Edition limited to 3,500 copies

Of all of the young discoveries who made their recording debut for Blue Note in the 1960s, Herbie Hancock was the most significant. A major innovator for over a half-century, Hancock typically started his career with an album (1962's Taking Off) that was full of accessible tunes (including his original "Watermelon Man"), exciting hard bop and innovative music that was beyond category. By the time he recorded Maiden Voyage in 1965, Hancock had been a very important member of the Miles Davis Quintet for two years and had already led five albums for Blue Note. Maiden Voyage, which teams Hancock with Freddie Hubbard, George Coleman, Ron Carter and Tony Williams, is a true classic. Each of the five Hancock originals, which include "The Eye Of The Hurricane" and the future standard "Dolphin Dance," inspire the musicians to play at their very best, the music is both accessible and unpredictable, and the communication between the players is consistently magical.
