Back in on vinyl for this classic. Hancock already had an acclaimed career before taking a slight detour in the early 70's.
Headhunters, however, was something very different: a stripped-down ensemble featuring reedman Bennie Maupin as the only horn player, and a funk-oriented rhythm section made up of Paul Jackson, Harvey Mason, and Bill Summers. Hancock traded in his sophisticated piano performances and complex compositions for simple melodies, slow-burn funk grooves, and light electric keyboard splashes. the results, particularly on the tracks "Chameleon" and "Watermelon Man," had a profound impact on other musicians. A true fusion classic.
