Head Hunters (CD)
I recall in Miles Davis' autobiography, he wrote about being somewhat put out by the reception of Head Hunters as a revolutionary album and its enormous commercial success. He felt it mined the same rock and funk-influenced jazz territory as his On the Corner album the previous year, which had caused few ripples at the time. However, where that album was a cacophonous evocation of the city in all its chaos, Head Hunters is smoothly funky, complex yet wildly accessible. It follows more closely the African movement of the time, with mock-traditional African instrumentation (a beer bottle standing in for a Pygmy wood-whistle) creeping in on the new version of "Watermelon Man", a song from Hancock's back catalogue revived and electrified for the seventies. The album cover features a VU meter on a recording drum superimposed over Hancock's face to simulate an African tribal mask.
