Review by Matt Collar - Allmusic.com
The idea of collecting tracks off several of jazz legend Herbie Hancock's albums from the influential '60s Blue Note years through to his Grammy-winning 2007 album River is a nice idea that doesn't quite come together on Verve's Then and Now: The Definitive Herbie Hancock. Obviously designed to showcase the whole of Hancock's career post his 2007 Grammy win for River: The Joni Letters, Then and Now doesn't really give you the full picture. With only five tracks devoted to his '60s/'70s recordings (arguably his most essential and defining period), there's just not enough "then" here to really qualify this as a "definitive" collection. Not to mention that Then and Now basically ignores Hancock's '70s recordings, opting for merely an "edit" of "Chameleon" and the album version of "Watermelon Man," which comes out of chronological order near the end of the collection. Add in that you only get a live version of "Rockit" and you're left with less a definitive view of Hancock's career and more of a thumbnail sketch.
First ever expanded CD Edition Of Herbie Hancocks 1979 album "Feets Don't Fail Me Now" Includes 7 Bonus Tracks.
Feets, Don't Fail Me Now is the twenty-seventh album by pianist Herbie Hancock. Beautifull Rhodes pianos and sinths,extremely funky! One of the few albums in wich herbie sings (w/ vocoder always)also one of the best records for the jazz-challenged to get into easily.
