Herbie Hancock is a true icon of modern music. Throughout his explorations, he has transcended limitations and genres while maintaining his unmistakable voice. With an illustrious career spanning five decades and 12 Grammy Awards including the 2007 Album Of The Year for ‘River: The Joni Letters', he continues to amaze audiences.

"Recorded after the funky fusion of Head Hunters, Thrust, Sextant, and other electric albums, and before the dawn of 'Rockit' and more commercially viable and hip-hop-oriented material, Herbie Hancock took time out in 1978 to touch base again with his piano. Recorded completely solo, this set was issued only in Japan as the truly awful Feets, Don't Fail Me Now was issued stateside. A curious set, the first half of the album features Hancock playing jazz standards in truly elegant and restrained fashion. His treatments of 'My Funny Valentine,' 'Green Dolphin Street,' and 'Someday My Prince Will Come' — all tracks he performed as part of the Miles Davis Quintet — are elongated, morphed, and beautifully woven together as a suite. The latter half of the recording is comprised of four tracks, 'Harvest Time,' 'Sonrisa,' 'Manhattan Island,' and 'Blue Otani,' all of which are originals." —
