Rating: **** (Recommended)

Recorded 1973, released January 1974 (US & UK) reached #13 in US
I can’t stand fusion from the early 70s, or jazz-funk led by a keyboard player, but this set from Hancock is the shit.  
  
He has lots of flights of fancy, but the flights are like birds of prey soaring over a train traveling through a deep groove in the earth.  Essential listening for fans of funk.
