This week's Sunday Music Muse day finds me, again, happily embarrassed to feature CDs of classic LPs the should have been in my music collection ages ago. First, two classics by Herbie Hancock, Maiden Voyage and Empyrean Isles. These are solid, highly regarded sessions, of pre-Headhunter Hancock dates with many well known tunes and legendary sidemen. I'm at lost to think of reason why I didn't have the original LPs. I do have Herbie Headhunter LP and his VSOP LP. These are Rudy Van Gelder Edition CDs which he transferred and remastered these classic Blue Note albums with 24-bit technology. They definitely fill another hole in my collection. While playing Maiden Voyage, my wife asked who was playing, because she like it. That's a sign of great music when it grabs the attention of a casual listener (in all fairness she has good taste music).
Going forward to enjoy these CDs. Enjoy.
