Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

by Marc Zisman

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

Success was immediate for the Headhunters. Hancock found the perfect balance between the subtle freedom of jazz and the incredible efficiency of funk sounds. His music progressively grew more refined. Trimming the fat from his compositions and aiming for the ultimate stripped down sound, he put emphasis on interactivity between his band’s musicians. Much like Miles had taught him: learn to listen to others, before listening to your own solo. The same Miles who, one night, even found himself opening for… the Headhunters! How the tables had turned! Head Hunters became the bedside record of a whole generation of musicians. On an amusing note, this album, originally stripped to the bones and deprived of any lyrical elements, has led some actors of the so-called jazz-rock scene to unload countless notes of unrestrained fusion, far removed from the theories explored in Head Hunters. The same team (except for Harvey Mason who was replaced by the drummer Mike Clark) followed up with the same efficiency on Thrust (1974) and Man-Child (1975). With the very mainstream Secrets (1976), the limits of Hancock’s new sound started to appear. The massive groove’s efficiency was still there, but the subtlety of improvisation was lacking. Hancock continued his electric trip with various levels of success, sinking at the end of the 70s into a disco soup unworthy of his talent, before returning to his first acoustic love and, in 1983, venturing on the path of electro and emerging hip-hop with his album Future Schock and premonitory electro single Rockit.
