    Maiden Voyage is a great album, but it's nothing like Chameleon. If you're only interested in the funky stuff, stick with the Headhunters stuff. If you're interested in 60s/70s modern jazz, by all means check out Maiden Voyage & his stuff with Miles, too.

    What??? No mention of "Speak Like a Child"??? And what cd is "4am" on? Anyway, that is certainly worth aquiring.

    'Sextant' is a great album! I think it's sometimes overlooked.

    I agrre, dave-
    Sextant is a great album!

    All 7 of Hancock's Blue Note albums are good listening, too-
    Takin' Off
    My Point Of View
    Inventions & Dimensions
    Empryean Isles
    Maiden Voyage
    Speak Like A Child
    The Prisoner

    ...you can pick all those up in a nice BOX SET(I lucked out & bought the box for $29 + shipping from ColumbiaHouse).

    Related to Sextant is the Mwandishi Sessions...or the Complete Warners Archives(includes Fat Albert Rotundoa & Crossings).

    Electrically, The Headhunters, Actual Proof, & Flood are 3 of my favorites...

    Herbie has recorded on about two or three albums, I believe:D ----

    I just picked one up that I think we all might find somewhat tasty: (or not)

    w/ Wayne Shorter- "The All-Seeing Eye"
    with Mr. Ron Carter no less.

    Ahhhhh- (jazz) Music!!!!!

    The All Seeing Eye is my favorite Wayne Shorter album!
    Don(RIP)Shorter has a tune on that album that just rips...

    Anyone got a copy of Don Shorter's Orgasm album? It's OOP & I gotta have it! ;)

    Herbie & Wayne & Ron....
    1 year earlier on "Speak No Evil"

    also (taking over the thread!:D )
    not TOO shabby
    Wayne Shorter w/ McCoy Tyner & Reggie Workman
    on "JuJu" !!
    Good Stuff-

    Is Don Shorter Wayne's Bro?

    I love Treasure Chest, it's one of my favorite albums of his electric stuff. I dig the production of it as much as the material. If memory serves me correctly it was one of the first albums that Herbie really got his hands dirty on the production end.

    Ostinato may be my favorite track on the album, dig that 15/8 funk, killer stuff!

    Yep; I wondered why I didn't hear so much about him until someone over @Jazz Corner clued me in...very, very tragic story.

    Archie Shepp's Four For Trane disc also has Don Shorter.

    If you like "Ostinato"(Buster Williams?), you'll like "The Bump" from Buster Williams' Pinnacle album.

    Yeah, it's Buster Williams alright. Pinnacle is a great album. You know of any other albums he's put out where he's wielding the Fender?

    I've been meaning to pick up Crystal Reflections for quite a while. Even though it's accoustic which I'm not too into, I got hear how him and Ayers gel.

    Thanks, for the info-Don't know if i should ask about the tragic story...
    Also tragic about Mr. (Wayne) Shorter's wife being aboard that airplane that crashed...

    On a happier note, ("improvising" the thread)
    ever hear Freddie Hubbard's "The Black Angel"?

    Not what you normally hear from him- pretty outside, w/ Reggie Workman , Kenny Barron, & percussion by "Patato" Valdes.

    I'm no AABA poster, either! ;)
    Not sure about that Hubbard tune...I'll have to check to see what I have in-stock here.
    You keep bringing up Reggie Workman...how 'bout Cerbral Caverns & Summit Conference?

    Regarding Buster Williams playing a Fender...not sure, is he goin' electric on one of those VSOP albums? I have that one on vinyl stashed somewhere; I seem to recall him pictured with a white Jazz bass.
