Herbie Hancock Sells In
Colman Andrews, Phonograph Record, November 1974
ALL OF A sudden you wake up one morning and find that Herbie Hancock has three albums on the charts. Herbie Hancock, one-time enfant terrible of the soul-jazz world, one-time pianist for the toughest goddam taskmaster in all of jazz (Miles Davis), one-time leader of the best (inner and outer) space-jazz band in America. Three albums on the charts. Not the soul or jazz charts. The chart charts.
