Herbie Hancock - Sunlight album


Size MP3 album: 1714 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1174 mb.

Sunlight is a June 1978 jazz-funk, fusion album by keyboardist Herbie Hancock. It features Hancock's vocals through a vocoder as well as performances by drummer Tony Williams and bassist Jaco Pastorius. This was when Hancock began heading towards a more mainstream Smooth Jazz/R&B fusion, similar to fellow Jazz-Fusion pianist Patrice Rushen. This would last until his 1982 album Lite Me Up.

Just take a look at the staggering collection of keyboards on the back cover of the Sunlight LP - all sought-after collectors' items now - yet Hancock makes so little use of their possibilities here. For much of the album, he seems most interested in establishing a new career as an electronic vocalist. I Thought It Was You," "Come Running to Me," and the title track introduce the ghostly, gauzy sound of Herbie's singing voice as heard through a vocoder; there's even an electronic Herbie scat choir
