Digitally remastered edition of this 1965 album from the Jazz keyboardist, Herbie Hancock.
Maiden Voyage is a masterpiece of the school, with Hancock's enduring compositions like
"Maiden Voyage" and "Dolphin Dance" mingling creative tension and calm repose with strong
melodies and airy, suspended harmonies that give form to his evocative sea imagery. Trumpeter
Freddie Hubbard was at a creative peak, stretching his extraordinary technique to the limits in
search of a Coltrane-like fluency on the heated "Eye of the Storm," while the underrated tenor
saxophonist George Coleman adds a developed lyricism to the session. --Stuart Broomer
