Herbie Hancock — a true original
As Richard Ginell of allmusic.com says "Herbie Hancock will always be one of the most revered and controversial figures in jazz — just as his employer/mentor Miles Davis was when he was alive. Unlike Miles, who pressed ahead relentlessly and never looked back until near the very end, Hancock has cut a zigzagging forward path, shuttling between almost every development in electronic and acoustic jazz and R&B over the last third of the 20th century." At Tetra we couldn't agree more ...
"... whenever I play the 606's for anyone it stops them dead in their tracks. They can't speak for a few minutes and then call they can say is "Whoa, unbelievable!" ... Those speakers speak for themselves. They don't need any hype ... I'll try to get Quincy over to the house to hear them. Stevie Wonder needs to hear them, too."
