Sextant, Herbie's most innovative outing, is a truly remarkable album that cannot be properly experienced until heard, and it is absolutely advisable one does so.
Time to groove. Inhe formed The Headhunters, and soon released an album under that name. This new funky sound helped him expand his fan base by crossing over to pop genres. The 2nd album under The Headhunters name was 'Thrust' released in and it continued the sound started with LP successful and acclaimed 'Head Hunters' album. It also turned out to be a huge selling album and is still considered relevant and important today.
It consists of 4 tracks spanning a total run time of 38 minutes. The tenor sax later takes over improvising off of the main riff, with plenty of keys supporting and at times taking over the lead. The catchy rhythm and flashy percussion carries it all forward and make the sound very appealing and accessible, but Hancock hadn't totally let The Fun Tracks - Herbie Hancock - Lite Me Up (Vinyl simple theme carry his tracks yet, so there is still plenty of real jazz improvisation to keep things interesting.
Hancock's album was a soundtrack for the controversial movie 'The Spook Who Sat By the Door' which was also a highly acclaimed album.
The next track on 'Thrust' which is called 'Actual Proof' was originally written for that soundtrack. A fast moving bass line drives the solo keyboards Fender Rhodes electric piano that highlight most of this track. The feel is much more progressive with some interesting competing meters The Fun Tracks - Herbie Hancock - Lite Me Up (Vinyl the improvisation and the rhythm section. This is not just a great example of Hancock's abilities on the electric piano, but is also an example of how he was able to make the rhythm section that supports improvisation much more interesting thus making the overall sound much more vibrant and dynamic.
This style of having a complex rhythm section underneath the solo instrument was all started by Hancock when he worked with Miles Davis and is one of the things that made Hancock so important and popular in those days.
This track doesn't really expand on other solo instrumentation until later in the 2nd half of the track when the alto flute gets a chance to show off a bit. Of course, the rhythm section is allowed to mess around with their own riffs, and soon the sax takes over the improvisation with a sweet solo as things get a little funkier with the freedom that the bass has to make his part interesting, but the tempo staying moderate.
The keys in this one pretty much holds everything together, but later, you get a solo from Hancock too, this time enhanced with some interesting sounding wind instruments. The interplay between the instruments makes this track interesting, and it stands out a lot more because of the slower tempo.
There are also noticeable layers of different synths. This track would be used on the Headhunters live album 'Flood' which would be released in After Hancock gets to show off his toys and his talent, the theme returns as at the first after LP 9 minute mark. That man is another extremely well talented musician and it is easy to see why Hancock used his talents a lot, even prior to forming The Headhunters.
He layers some of his instruments to make some interesting sounds and contrasts through the album, but they really stand out here, and go so well with Hancock's style. After a while, the sax breaks out of the fray with another nice solo. Hancock knew he had a top notch musician there and it is great he would allow him to show off also, but also gives more variety to the music.
They always complimented each other so well. But as the labels used different encoding methods for the process, no 'standard' could be set for the four-channel sound and in a few years all the labels abandoned the quadraphonic sound. In the mid 70's the Disco movement started, but surprisingly Columbia as many other major labelswas late trying to cash in on the Disco craze. It was mainly two SAM acts that scored lots of hits and success for Columbia. She would later also sing with another Columbia act, Totoin their '79 classic "Georgy Porgy".
As said above, apart from the co-operation with SAM, it wasn't until Columbia really started pushing out Disco 12" releases. In the early eighties 'Disco Died', or at least it was this 'Disco backlash' with records burning and similar.
We all know that Disco never really died, it only took new shapes, or in theory only new names, but didn't give us much 12" Disco from Columbia. Because in they released the Thriller The Fun Tracks - Herbie Hancock - Lite Me Up (Vinyl by Michael Jackson, the biggest-selling album ever, including hits like "Billie Jean""P.
It's really a great album that is well worth checking out The label has continued to release great music, but as it has not really been 'Disco' per say, I have chosen not to get into it further here.
