* 180 gram vinyl * The cover of Thrust reveals a lot of the album. Herbie's sitting comfortably his spaceship controlled by a synth froman alien world, reachingto the clouds and beyond. Well, that's what his stature was in 1974 - one of the seminal renewers of Jazz by incorporating new electric instruments like theARP synthesizer.
Thrust is the follow up to Head Hunters using the same band except for drummer HarveyMason, who is replaced by Mike Clark, a Jazz great in his own right.
Again, only four songs on this single LP, each around 10 minutes long. "Butterfly" is a great spacy jam with intricate twists and turns. And when hearing the intro drum break of "Palm Grease", you know this is a must-have album for all you groove addicts!
