Eastside Radio’s Album Of The Week: 3 May – 9 May

Eastside Radio’s Album of the Week is Sleeping Giant by Herbie Hancock, released through X5 Music Group/Warner Music Group.

A funky album featuring lots of electric piano with a little guitar and brass, Sleeping Giant consists mainly of material that Warner Music owns the rights to, with tracks mostly drawn from Hancock’s earlier albums: Fat Albert Rotunda (1969), Mwandishi (1971) and Crossings (1972).

Hancock received considerable attention when he joined Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet in ’63 and also found time to record many sessions for the Blue Note label. His music has earned him an Academy Award (Original Soundtrack for “Round Midnight” in 1986) as well as numerous Grammy Awards. In, 2013 he was given the Kennedy Center Honors Award for achievement in the performing arts with artists like Snoop Dog and Mixmaster Mike from the Beastie Boys performing his music.
