Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #172
May 10, 2015
Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Mr. Hands by Herbie Hancock.
This weeks album was released in 1980. It bring with it, a slick, cool, imperturbable groove, laid out by one of the great masters of our time. The synth induced percussion has a timeless feel, both in its exterior sound, and in the journeys they provide. Mesmerising and easy going, this is something to close your eyes and kick back to.
