REVIEW: Recorded in 1984, three masters (Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Billy Cobham) explore their roots and capture the full spectrum of the art of jazz…a display of lyrical sensuality and sizzling pyrotechnics.
Herbie Hancock has developed a unique and versatile piano and influenced all of pop music. Both he and Ron Carter were members of the legendary Miles Davis Quintet from 1963-68. Fusing R&B influences with electronics, he helped invent jazz/funk and became one of the few jazz greats to have multiple albums hit the charts, while adding standards to the jazz repertoire. His hit “Rock-It” and his Oscar for Round Midnight underscore the diversity of his talent.
Ron Carter, with his interface style, unique tone, taste and sense of time, is considered the premiere bassist in modern jazz. He has excelled as a composer, arranger, leader and musician who has performed on well over 3,000 albums.
Billy Cobham, a major percussionist in both the jazz and rock worlds plays with a rare combination of power, precision and endurance, One of the most recorded drummers of all time, he played on Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew and became one of the founders of fusion in 1968 with his band, Dreams and with guitarist John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
