Herbie Hancock

In 1975 this was already Herbie Hancock's seventeenth (!) album. Considered to be amongst his funkiest albums, I have to say that's probably why I enjoyed it so much.
From the outset it practically sounds like it should be shelved along with the rest of my funk/soul records, but Mr. Hancock's roots don't hide for long and things rather quickly evolve into a free-form odyssey of jazzy funkiness.

Considering the couple of other Hancock albums I've relieved myself of because of their decidedly "sythesized" nature I don't suppose it should be a surprise to anyone that I'm electing to hang onto this older, funkier selection.
