Herbie Hancock – Maiden Voyage: Takin’ Off, Sextant, Empyrean Isles, Maiden Voyage… it seems Hancock has a thing for sailing the sea, though I’m not sure how much of the sea I hear in his music. It’s all rather earthy, actually, despite its intent of being oceanic in its atmosphere. Ah, I don’t know. I guess I hear the tossing of the waves now and again.
