Directions In Music: Live At Massey Hall
Released: Jun 2002
Hancock pays tribute to his old boss, Miles Davis, by pushing his Post Bop period with Coltrane in new directions. The young Roy Hargrove is excellent in the trumpet role, while Michael Brecker offers some of his most incendiary saxophone work ever. Special mention must go to John Patitucci on bass, but the entire ensemble sizzles.
