Probably the most influential fusion of Jazz and Funk, this million selling album from 1973 ‘crossed Herbie over to a much broader and wider audience. The hit single ‘Chameleon’ has inspired Jazz Funk artists, Hip Hop producers and music fans alike. This 15 minute cut driven by Harvey Mason’s drums and Paul Jackson’s growling bass mutates into so many segments that it sounds like 3 or 4 tracks in one. The tribute cut ‘Sly’ and ‘Vein Melter’ are more intense pieces but maintain the Funk. With ‘Headhunters’ Herbie re-invented himself after the post ‘Bitches Brew’ heaviness of his albums like ‘Sextant’ and Mwandishi and thus crossing Jazz over to an entire new audience. ‘Headhunters’ is the work of genius and it sounds more contemporary than ever and of course the famous Headhunters group were born.
