Herbie Hancock - Sextant mp3 album

Sextant is the eleventh studio album by Herbie Hancock, released in 1973 by Columbia. It is his last album with his early '70s Mwandishi-era Band. Released on March 30 1973, Sextant was Herbie Hancock's first album on Columbia Records. The album was Hancock's last with his Mwandishi-era group. All songs by Herbie Hancock.

When Herbie Hancock left Warner Bros. in 1971 after releasing three musically sound but critically and commercially underappreciated albums - The Crossing, Mwandishi, and Fat Albert's Groove - he was struggling. At odds with a jazz establishment that longed for his return to his Blue Note sound and a fierce consciousness struggle with free music and the full-on embrace of electricity since his tenure with Miles Davis, Hancock was clearly looking for a voice.

Sextant is a music studio album recording by HERBIE HANCOCK (Jazz ive Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). It's a useful album if you're a Hancock fan or one beginning to get into the contributions that this very important musician has made throughout his career. But do not, by any means, judge him on this one alone. Like Miles - on whom he had, in my opinion, just as great an influence as Miles had on him - it's impossible to pin his sound down to one period.
