Hancock, Herbie – Inventions & Dimensions (LP-New)


For his third Blue Note album Inventions & Dimensions (1963), pianist Herbie Hancock began moving away from the modernist hard bop sound that defined his first two albums Takin’ Off and My Point Of View. Inspired by explorers like Eric Dolphy and Tony Williams, Hancock went in search of greater musical freedom by composing a set of ingenious originals each with their own unique inner logic that did away with what he considered the established jazz “assumptions” of the time. Band mates are Paul Chambers on bass, Willie Bobo on drums & timbales, & Osvaldo “Chihuahau” Martinez, on conga & bongos. This is an odd pressing in that the catalogue number as printed is 4147, which denotes MONO (Stereo would start with an 8), yet, on the back, it is clearly printed with STEREO on the upper L corner. As the record was recorded in 1963, it could go either way. We’re not quite certain what you’ll get besides great music. This re-issue does not have a barcode.
