Below the sphere

What a nice chillout song from Andri and from Wade – couldn’t resist to add my ‘grandma’ to it:

Maiden Voyage (composition)

Herbie Hancock’s favourite own composition – at least when asked in an interview in 2011 – is Maiden Voyage, from 1965. You can also read about it on Wikipedia, read an archived album review from jazz.com, or watch part of that interview here:

And that rhythm and those four suspended chords are well worth studying. It’s one of the greatest jazz albums I know, so listen to just that composition (with Herbie Hancock (p), Freddie Hubbard (tr), George Coleman (ts), Ron Carter (b), and Tony Williams (dr)) here:

Wonderful. Thanks for listening.
