Overview

This disc is a bit unusual in a few ways. Vibraphonist Dave Pike sticks here exclusively to the marimba, while pianist Herbie Hancock is heard throughout on organ, an instrument he rarely played again. The band also includes two trumpeters (most notably Clark Terry who has a few short solos) and a rhythm section with guitarist Billy Butler. Most of the music consists of obscurities and is open to the influences of the boogaloo and pop rhythms of the era; highlights include Hancock's "Blind Man, Blind Man," "Sunny" and "Devilette." An interesting effort.

This is a very fresh, and dinamic record. It has all essence of the sixities rythm and sound. It is a rare occasion, here, to listen to Herbie Hancock on organ. Organ solo's through are very versatile and rythmic. A fantastic musical dialogue is occuring on Sweet Tater Pie, I have no doubt that john Lord and his friends have later followed this in Deep Purple.The two trumpets have added a very funky texture to Pike's very jazzy notes on vibes. Jazz for the Jet Set is a delighting and nostalgic musical listening.
