Synopsis

Album Description
Japan exclusive 1997 remastered reissue of this album originally released in 1978. 'Piano' was recorded after the funky fusion of 'Head Hunters' (1973), 'Thrust' (1974), 'Sextant' (1972), & other electric albums, & before the dawn of 'Rockit' (1983). Herbie Hancock took time out in 1978 to touch base again with his piano. Recorded completely solo, this set was issued only in Japan. A curious set of seven tracks, the first half of the album features Hancock playing jazz standards in a truly elegant & restrained fashion. This is a stunning triumph for Hancock, & it's too bad that the album has never been issued in the U.S., as it would undoubtedly be a popular addition to his vast catalog. Sony.
