Crossings is the second album in the experimental sextet trilogy Herbie Hancock released early 1970s. His electronic movements are further explored and the whole sound comes alive in the three long tracks this album consists about. The album opens with some African drums before moving on the to some of the unearthed sounds the sextet created for this album. Centerpiece Sleeping Giant is nearly 25 minutes long and is divided into five funky and groovy parts. A transcendent experience that has grown over time into one of the most moving, powerful and innovative artistic statements of the modern era. Over forty years later this album still sounds incredibly ahead of its time.
LP – 180 Gram Vinyl housed in Gatefold Sleeve with Insert.
