My favorite Herbie album is Crossings, "experimental jazz" (hate that
phrase, experimental indicates that the dont know the outcome) with
I did'nt like the headhunters album either, so simple (and therefore
maybe brillant) that it starts irritating me in a few seconds. Manchild
and especially Thrust are more elaborate and there for more

Yes, something like that. In 1998 they released Return of the Headhunters,
which I eagerly anticipated. This review says it all.
"After a two-decade-long hiatus, Herbie Hancock's Headhunters returned to
action in 1998 with their funk groove pretty much intact, allowing for some
technological and stylistic updating. The core of the band -- the
too-long-neglected Bennie Maupin (saxes, bass clarinet), Paul Jackson
(bass), Bill Summers (percussion), and the group's second drummer Mike Clark
-- still has the complex funk telepathic interplay down pat, though
occasionally the rhythms are simplified for contemporary audiences. Hancock
himself only appears on four out of ten tracks."
For an all together unforgetable evening over the Labor Day weekend Aug. 31
- Sept. 3,2000, I have early warning news that the David Murray Octet will
be playing at the Chicago Jazz Festival on Friday the same evening as Herbie
