    I had the great fortune to be around the Hancock ‘Mwandishi’ band during the recording of ‘Sextant,’ the last before his major change in bandmates which brought on ‘Headhunters.’ And while ‘Headhunters’ and ‘Secrets’ are probably more accessible, ‘Sextant’ is far more challenging and, frankly, more demanding of your attention. And listening to it in quad is glorious. The ‘Mwandishi’ band has gone down in history as one of the greatest examples of jazz fusion from the late sixties and early seventies.

    Sextant style is noncommercialcrazy 🙂 music. Musically is the best Herbie quad album for me. I have older, probably SQ transfer from SporkDude ??? finded on avax/rutracker. It’s very good transfer but I’m waiting for confirmed SQ or Q8 version.

    A bit less funky than the previous Herbie Hancock releases on the blog, but still great fun. It didn’t quite make me bounce on the sofa the way the previous ones did but there’s still great action going on in all speakers.

    Is there more Herbie Hancock in quad that hasn’t appeared yet on the blog? And if so which existing releases is it like in style?

      Four are listed as having been released in quad, the missing one being ‘Sextant’ As to it’s style i can’t really say,been a long time since i’ve actually heard it.

        Sextant is far out from the current releases here. I don’t want to offend any one. Being one of the visitors that has found new music here including the 70’s Herbie Hancock. The horn is the only traditional instrument I recognize. Lots of synth and electronics. If I was scoring a scene in a movie. It would involve black lights, random strobes and a black room with a star field projected in motion over the entire room. Guess what the kids in the room would be dropping?

        So comparing style night and day, but that said album would be great to curl up and listen to in the dark.
