Herbie Hancock    <>  THRUST  
"...a bible of advanced, yet accessible, groove playing."

Thrust, the 1974 follow-up to the breakthrough Headhunters album was virtually
as good as its wildly successful predecessor and it also reached #13 on the
Billboard LP chart.

Herbie Hancock continued to reach into the rapidly changing high-tech world for
new sounds, most notably the metallic sheen of the then-new ARP string synthesizer
which was already becoming a staple item on pop and jazz-rock records.

The set includes four extended tracks, three of which concentrate on the funk with
plenty of Hancock's wah-wah clavinet, synthesizer textures and effects, and electric
piano ruminations that venture beyond the outer limits of post-bop. The change-of-pace
is one of Hancock's loveliest electric pieces, "Butterfly," a match for any tune he's
written before or since.

The lineup for Thrust present a tightly knit ensemble that
could turn a groove inside and out without losing its center. Credit the rhythm
trio of electric bassist Paul Jackson, drummer Mike Clark and percussionist Bill
and the consistently convincing playing of reedman and indispensable colorist
Bennie Maupin, another Miles Davis alum.
