Jazz for the Jet Set

Jazz for the Jet Set

Dave Pike has created this swell recording for all those swingin’ bachelors. Herbie Hancock plays the keyboard along side Dave Pike’s vibraphone. Bobby Hebb had wrote “Sunny” and introduced it in this album, which was later released for hundreds of additional recordings.

This album reminds me a little of Cal Tjader, who was the creator of Acid Jazz. Some of my favorite recordings are “Blind Man, Blind Man,” “Jet Set”, and “Devilette.” Jazz for the Jet Set is really boss! I highly recommend it for your next cocktail party!
