Inventions & Dimensions (Blue note reissue)

 Un album vraiment unique et indispensable du grand Herbie Hancok, composé autour de percussions latines. Accompagné du bassiste Paul Chambers et des deux percussionnistes Willie Bobo et Osvaldo « Chihuahua » Martinez, ces quatre grands jazzmen improvisent en studio pour une session live rare et groovy très libre. Plus aventureux que d’habitude, mais qui ne va jamais trop loin. Cet album contient notamment « succotash », « Triangle », et « mimosa ».

Herbie only wrote simple sketches for the songs on the album, and most of the work on the tracks was done live, spontaneously, in the studio — creating a very free groove that never goes too far out, but which is far more adventurous than usual. All tracks are long, and titles include “Succotash”, “Triangle”, and “Mimosa” (courtesy of
