Keyboard music changed with this album; A truly innovative classic!
Seminal jazz "fusion" album from former Miles Davis sideman Herbie Hancock. Really, fusion is kind of a meaningless term because isn't all a music a fusion of different styles and elements? Rock and jazz did inhabit different world for a while, with musicians from each field looking askance at each other until more avant elements from each side started to incorporate elements of the other genre. Miles Davis, as he so often did, led the way by electrifying his band and looking towards funk, rock, and world music for inspiration. "Head Hunters" is sort of funk-jazz and feels like a continuation of Davis's "Bitches Brew." I assume the song "Sly" is a shout out to Sly and the Family Stone, another group pushing the envelope of genre at the time.
