"... essential for any collection ..." - The Guardian "... one of the most accomplished and stunning debuts in the annals of jazz." - The Rough Guide to Jazz The phenomenally-successful debut from a 22-year-old Herbie Hancock, released in 1962. Despite his youth this is a sophisticated record, both in the playing and songwriting. Hancock's all-original material shows off his already keen knack for hooks, particularly on the jazz classic Watermelon Man, often-covered and considered the biggest soul jazz hit ever written. Features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Dexter Gordon on tenor sax.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
