Herbie Hancock - Secrets (1976) Secrets is the seventeenth studio album of jazz musician, keyboard player Herbie Hancock. The album was recorded in California in San Francisco and was released in August 1976. Herbie Hancock's sound continues to be polished, beaming with a funky sheen. The guitar passages that appeared on "Man-Child" look even more powerful here and already play a full-fledged role in the overall musical picture. The relaxed atmosphere is achieved through calm, measured rhythms, on which the music of the album predominantly rests. Even the most rhythmic things like “Doin 'It,” and those look rather lazy and somehow unhurried. The grooves quietly swaying back and forth, the music slowly goes on as usual, and from all this it makes my soul feel good and pleasant. In some places, the music dissolves a bit in the ambience of ambient music. Solos here are mainly on the saxophone and, of course, on keyboards in a variety of their manifestations. The guitar looks more like a decorative, but very important element, and a balanced and balanced rhythm section draws beautiful sliding landscapes. Despite the summer and soft sound, the album was far from lounge music, with some extremely abstract and intense sections, especially in the second half; Personnel James Gadson - drums on Doin 'It Herbie Hancock - ARP Odyssey, ARP String Ensemble, Hohner D6 Clavinet, Micromoog, Oberheim 4 Voice, Echoplex Bennie Maupin - soprano sax, tenor sax, saxello, lyricon, bass clarinet Ray Parker Jr. - guitar, backing vocals on Doin 'It Paul Jackson - bass James Levi - drums Kenneth Nash - percussion Wah Wah Watson - guitar, Maestro universal voice synthesizer system / sample and hold unit, voice bag; vocals & bass on doin 'it

The secret to learn jazz the way the masters play - lessons with George Whitty, the keyboardist for the Brecker Brothers, David Sanborn, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, Celine Dion... For info on how to take jazz lessons with me via Skype, visit http://www.jazzlessonsonskype.com and join my alert list to download 4 FREE CUSTOM PLAY-ALONG TRACKS and a PDF of the Dominant Bop Scales fingered for piano! If you're grooving on this jazz lesson, please throw me a LIKE! And feel free to post any questions in the comments below! Huge thanks! When we're learning how to play jazz, it's common for jazz teachers to talk about the Modes as the building block of improvisation. But the modes have a fatal flaw to which far too many teachers are oblivious: as you play up the scale, the scale goes "out of sync" with the harmony you're playing on. An eight note "Bop Scale" or "Bebop Scale" keeps you in sync! Take a jazz piano lesson on me as we explore this essential aspect of jazz improvisation, learn to improvise by getting off on the RIGHT FOOT, and, like I was, you might be shocked at the huge difference it makes, how much more "right" your improvisation sounds in short order!

Many of Shorter's compositions have become jazz standards, and his output has earned worldwide recognition and critical praise. Shorter first came to wide prominence in the late 1950s as a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. In the 1960s, he went on to join Miles Davis's Second Great Quintet, and from there he co-founded the jazz fusion band Weather Report. He has recorded over 20 albums as a bandleader and has won 10 Grammy Awards. He has also received acclaim for his mastery of the soprano saxophone (after switching his focus from the tenor in the late 1960s). The New York Times has described Shorter as "probably jazz's greatest living small-group composer and a contender for greatest living improviser." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Shorter

This is an improvement over Hancock's disco-era productions since at least it is grounded in Herbie's own '70s funk outings ("Chameleon," etc.) instead of generic dance music. Technically, this is an R&B album -- not disco -- with funkier, more flexible rhythm sections, more intriguing electronic instrumental decorations by Hancock, and some first-class instrumental contributions by the Brothers Johnson, the Escovedo family and Michael Brecker. Herbie even gives himself solo breaks on "Magic Number" and "Satisfied with Love" that redeem both tracks and there is a spooky foretaste of techno-pop on "The Twilight Clone." True, this album is still dominated by the R&B vocals of Sylvester, Gavin Christopher and Vicki Randle but Hancock's own sonic signatures make this record listenable.

Rare 1976 recording of the Herbie Hancock group, featuring Bennie Maupin and Wah Wah Watson performing Herbie's "Gentle Thoughts," recorded on Herbie's album, "Secrets." Background and Education Born on April 12, 1940, in Chicago, Illinois, Herbert Jeffrey Hancock began studying piano when he was 7 years old. A few years later, as a tween, he was playing Mozart with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He began to enjoy jazz compositions during his high school years and, upon entering Grinnell College in 1956, decided to focus on electrical engineering. The major initially seemed more practical and allowed him to invest in his passion for technology. Yet Hancock decided to switch over to music composition and formed his own group, later moving to New York to play with trumpeter Donald Byrd. Album Debut: 'Takin' Off' Herbie Hancock landed a record deal with Blue Note and released his debut album as the head of a band, Takin' Off, which garnered fame as the first album on the Blue Note roster to feature all newly composed tunes, like the seminal "Watermelon Man." While continuing to record and pen future classics like "Cantaloupe Island" and "Maiden Voyage," Hancock played with Miles Davis. Starting in 1963, he would be part of the bandleader's group for several years, with the two influencing each other's sound and Davis introducing Hancock to the electric piano. Musical Explorer Over the ensuing years, via the release of dozens of albums, Hancock established a reputation as an outstanding composer who feels free to explore genres outside of traditional jazz, ranging from fusion to R&B to hip-hop. The sonically radical, mystical and revered Mwandishi (1970) was followed a bit later by the funk-based, platinum-certified Head Hunters (1973); the album featured "Chameleon" and another version of "Watermelon Man," whose sexy grooves would later be sampled in hip-hop/reggae circles. 1977's "Sunlight" featured rejuvenating soul with Hancock himself on vocoder vocals. He continued playing in different forms, including stints with the V.S.O.P. quintet that reunited members of Davis' band. 1983's Future Shock featured the award-winning, blipped-out single "Rockit," known for its MTV coolness. The following decades saw more releases on different labels, including Dis Is Da Drum (1994), Gershwin's World (1998), honoring George Gershwin's 100th birthday, and the electronica-oriented Future 2 Future (2001). 2010's The Imagine Project saw the composer working with an international cast that included Céu, Pink, Seal and Juanes. Film/TV Scores and Awards Hancock has also provided scores to a number of TV and film projects. He penned music for Bill Cosby's Fat Albert cartoon and an accompanying album as well as for films like Death Wish (1974), A Soldier's Story (1984) and Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling (1986). He won an Academy Award for the score to 'Round Midnight (1986), co-starring in the project as well. By 2013, Herbie Hancock had won 14 Grammy Awards, including for album of the year in 2008, for his tribute to friend Joni Mitchell, River: The Joni Letters—marking the first time in more than four decades that the award went to a jazz musician. The album featured artists like Tina Turner, Norah Jones and Leonard Cohen. Hancock is a practitioner of Nichiren Buddhism, whose spiritual practices inform his art and philosophies. With a 34-CD Columbia Records box set released in the fall of 2013, Hancock later gave lectures at Harvard University in 2014 as part of its Charles Eliot Norton Professorship in Poetry series. And in October of that year he released the memoir Possibilities, co-written with Lisa Dickey.

I do not own the music or image. All rights go to their respective owners. ( Mr. Herbie Hancock and Blue Note Music)Track list and time stop below. Some people may recognize the last track of the album which is "Dolphin Dance". Dolphin Dance was written by Mr. Hancock and not only appears on this album but was recorded on several other of Mr. Hancock's albums and was also recorded by Mr. Grover Washington Jr and used on his album " A Secret Place". ( Which you can also find on my channel.) Dolphin Dance is an absolute masterpiece of Jazz and is actually considered a jazz standard. This album itself ( Maiden Voyage ) took the jazz world by storm." The Penguin Guide to Jazz designated the album as part of its Core Collection with a four star rating, calling it "a colossal achievement from a man still just 24 years old." I cannot say enough about this album except it is truly one of the benchmarks of the industry and an album that artists dream of recording. ENJOY ! Track Listing 1. Maiden Voyage 0:00 2. Eye of the Hurricane 7:54 3. Little One 13:54 4. Survival of the Fittest 22:45 5. Dolphin Dance 32:47
