Herbie Hancock: "Maiden Voyage"

9:06pm - 12:31am

Herbie's album done in March of 1965 has proven to be one of his most famous albums and now listed in journals as one of the 100 essential Jazz albums in anyone's collection. Herbie Hancock picked his quintet members with great discretion. On trumpet is the mighty Freddie Hubbard and on tenor saxophone is one of the great living masters, George Coleman. On bass is another living master, Ron Carter and on drums providing the incredible textures that Hancock's five compositions demand is the one and only, the late Tony Williams. Two of the album's compositions became "Jazz Standards" played by everyone: "Maiden Voyage" and "Dolphin Dance". With this album, we are now back to live broadcasting and this is our first live broadcast after the pandemic lockdown and it's appropriately a "Maiden Voyage".
