Notes and Editorial Reviews

Maiden Voyage is a concept album that absolutely succeeds in its intended effect of creating an oceanic atmosphere. Clearly inspired by frequent collaborator Miles Davis’ modal works, Hancock’s quintet alternate between beautifully impressionistic compositions such as the title track and envelope-pushing hard bop tunes such as “The Eye of the Hurricane”. The result is Herbie Hancock’s best album of the 1960’s and an essential album of modal jazz.
