Excellent Good Fair Poor : COMPACT DISCS

January 14, 1986|DENNIS HUNT | Terry Atkinson

"Headhunters." Herbie Hancock. Columbia. Though this 1973 album by keyboardist Hancock is more funk than jazz, it was the first jazz album to be certified a "gold record." Possibly the best jazz-funk LP ever recorded, its success inspired many jazz musicians to attempt more commercial music.
