'Juicy jams for toasty weather. Hot dogs ridin' baked beats. Settle into your summer with this laid-back collection of slinky grooves.' - LL, Amoeba buyer In celebration of the thirty year anniversary of the most critically acclaimed and largest selling jazz funk album of all time, Herbie Hancock's 'Headhunters', comes '1st Mack to the Moon'. Under the direction of producer and composer, AJA WEST, Herbie's original rhythm section of MIKE CLARK on drums and PAUL JACKSON on bass reunite and sound better than ever. The inclusion of long time James Brown writer and arranger FRED WESLEY on trombone takes this over the top. It's like a funk fusion fantasy band! Every track is incredibly dope, consistently funky and well recorded. It may take another thirty years of digestion for someone to properly follow up this effort! DJ Peanuts.com.
