Performer Notes
  • The Rudy Van Gelder Edition of MAIDEN VOYAGE includes an essay by Bob Blumenthal.
  • Personnel: Herbie Hancock (piano); George Coleman (tenor saxophone); Freddie Hubbard (trumpet); Ron Carter (bass); Tony Williams (drums).
  • Recorded at Van Gelder Studios, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on May 17, 1965. Originally released on Blue Note (BLP 4195). Includes liner notes by Herbie Hancock and Nora Kelly.
  • Digitally remastered by Rudy Van Gelder.
  • This is part of the Blue Note Rudy Van Gelder Editions series.
  • Probably the best in Herbie Hancock's series of fine Blue Note albums from the 60s, Maiden Voyage finds him in what is basically the Miles Davis band of the time, with Miles replaced by the young Freddie Hubbard.
