Description

Herbie Hancock's classic 'Takin' Off' + 5 bonus tracks, includes 28-page booklet with specially prepared liner notes by the Penguin Guide to Jazz writer, Brian Morton.

"Herbie Hancock's debut (Blue Note) was a definite epoch in modern jazz. The 22-year-old had emerged professionally with Coleman Hawkins and then with Donald Byrd. He quickly came to the attention of Alfred Lion at Blue Note, who agreed to let the young man record with a horn-led group rather than a trio. The session of May 28, 1962, done without much advance preparation, is astonishingly mature." - Penguin Guide To Jazz
