Herbie Hancock Speak Like A Child Vinyl LP

Remastered and Reissued As Part of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign

While Herbie Hancock had been recording brilliant albums for Blue Note since 1961, Speak Like A Child was made right after he left the Miles Davis Quintet and became a very powerful musical force as a bandleader. Speak Like A Child was Hancock’s musical vision, the music that he had dreamed of for years. The tonalities and harmonies were achieved by voicing together the unique frontline of flugelhorn, bass trombone and alto flute, and the results are quite dreamlike.

Speak Like A Child welcomes listeners to the magical musical world of Herbie Hancock, a place where catchy melodies co-exist with his adventurous and utterly unpredictable solos, where his pent-up musical desires were finally being let loose, and where the haunting atmosphere is both calming and inwardly passionate. Nothing like this had ever been heard before, in jazz or in music period.

Herbie Hancock (piano)
