Chicago-born pianist/composer Herbie Hancock had already
made his mark when, in 1962, he recorded 'Takin' Off' for the
Blue Note label; it was his first under his own name. At only
twenty-two years of age, the company offered him a solo contract
which would allow him to record a number of rightly revered
albums throughout the Sixties. The release of 'Takin' Off' almost
immediately singled out Hancock as one to watch, the hard-bop
message delivered in striking fashion by the leader and his
sidemen. Incidentally, trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, only a couple
of years Hancock's senior, already had a couple of albums under
his belt for Blue Note, and these were as well received as the
pianist's own debut disc would be.
