Short intro

Takin' Off is the debut album by jazz pianist Herbie Hancock released on 4 July 1962 by Blue Note Records. The recording session features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Dexter Gordon on tenor saxophone. The album is in the hard bop idiom, with its characteristic two horns and a rhythm section. The bluesy track Watermelon Man made it to the Top 100 of the singles charts, and went on to become a jazz standard. The album has been called one of the most accomplished and stunning debuts in the annals of. So even if, in retrospect, Takin' Off is among Hancock's most conventional albums, it shows a young stylist already strikingly mature for his age, and one who can interpret established forms with spirit and imagination. Case in point: the simple, catchy Watermelon Man, which became a Hancock signature tune and a jazz standard in the wake of a hit cover by Latin jazz star Mongo Santamaria. Herbie Hancock.
