Mono - Stereo edition. Chicago-born pianist/composer Herbie Hancock had already made his mark when, in 1962, he recorded Takin Off for the Blue Note label; it was his first under his own name. Hancock had emerged as a child prodigy, studied at the liberal arts college Grinnell and eventually got a job offer from trumpeter Donald Byrd. All the material on Takin Off came from the pianist s own hand but it was one track in particular that really took off. The Latin-based Watermelon Man , as one writer remarked, Watermelon Man alone must have earned Hancock more in BMI copyright returns than most jazz composers see in a whole career.
