My Point of View and Inventions and Dimensions found Herbie Hancock exploring the fringes of hard bop, working with a big band and a Latin-flavored percussion section, respectively. On Empyrean Isles, he returns to hard bop, but the results are anything but conventional.

Empyrean Isles is a soft, gentle jazz album which offers few hints of the funk-fusion departures that would litter Herbie Hancock's later career (though Cantaloupe Island does have a little funk in its step). Aside from Herbie's piano, Freddie Hubbard is the major soloist here, with excellent cornet work which Herbie is wise enough to allow to take centre stage whenever the spirit's on Hubbard.

Herbie Hancock: Empyrean Isles by Greg Simmons, published on May 24, 2012. Most importantly the weight of the piano chords come through loud and clear.

As for the content, I've considered Empyrean Isles to be one of the gateways from a fan of jazz standards to be able to discover and enjoy jazz fusion. Moreover, I think anyone familiar with early jazz fusion (particularly some of Weather Report's more popular work) will find undeniable influences in The Egg, which is propelled by the preceding Cantaloupe Island.

On Wednesday, 17 June 1964, pianist Herbie Hancock went into Van Gelder Studio, in New Jersey, to record what became Empyrean Isles, his fourth album for Blue Note Records. Listen to Empyrean Isles right now. By then, at the age of 24, the bespectacled, classically-trained Chicagoan was already a rising star in the jazz world. Structurally, Empyrean Isles’ opener, ‘One Finger Snap’, which begins with a fleeting unison theme on cornet and piano, before Hubbard breaks off for a solo, demonstrates Hancock’s propensity to take risks – something that he had learned from working with Miles Davis, who instilled in him the notion that there were no wrong notes or mistakes. Williams and Carter initiate a lightly swinging groove, over which Hubbard lets rip with molten cornet lines while Hancock supports him with subtle staccato punctuation.

Crossings is the tenth album by jazz pianist Herbie Hancock, released in 1972. It is the second album in his Mwandishi period, which saw him experimenting in electronics. He was scheduled to "set up his Moog synthesiser for Hancock to play. However, Hancock was so impressed with Gleeson that he "asked Gleeson not only to do the overdubs on the album but join the group.
