Takin' Off, Herbie Hancock's stunning debut album was released by Blue Note in 1962. Hancock's modern and dynamic form of jazz takes off from here, with the young pianist leading a marvelous quintet including Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Dexter Gordon on tenor sax, Butch Warren on double bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. The album contains "Watermelon Man," Hancock's first big hit, well-known as a classic standard in the history of jazz and popular music. In one word: essential!
