Maiden Voyage

Maiden Voyage
August 2015

Another classic from Herbie Hancock's Blue Note years. It's the title track off his fifth album and was recorded on May 17, 1965. It was arguably a concept album long before prog rock bands adopted the idea. It's a modal Jazz piece and consequently not easy to solo over. I stuck with a clean tone and adlibs, no recognisable guitar solo. It's very much a 'vibe', not really seeking to go beyond the laid back ethereal groove. This is the sort of chillout that Miles Davis did so well on his In A Silent Way album (Shhh and Peaceful).
