Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 6/95, p.138
4 Stars - Excellent - "...this 1965 date is arguably Hancock's finest half-hour of his long career. His compositional strength has never been bettered (four out of five tracks have become classics) and his piano playing is a model of the lucid, cerebral style that continues to act as a role model to young aspirants..."

Probably the best in Herbie Hancock's series of fine Blue Note albums from the 60s, Maiden Voyage finds him in what is basically the Miles Davis band of the time, with Miles replaced by the young Freddie Hubbard. Hancock has always been a fine composer, but Maiden Voyage contains two classic compositions in particular - the beautiful 'Dolphin Dance', and the atmospheric and popular title track. Saxophonist George Coleman, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Tony Williams play as well throughout as they have ever played, and the whole record is marked with a timeless freshness and sense of creative tension.
