Herbie Hancock - Takin’ Off
This was his debut as a leader for Blue Note records, at the tender age of 22. He’s joined by tenor giant, Dexter Gordon, Freddie Hubbard, Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Not a bad way to start your career!
Don Wilkerson - Dem Tambourines
Grant Green’s guitar playing here is just phenomenal. Wilkerson is another one of the lesser known talents on Blue Note. He was a fine tenor sax player.
