Apparently recorded in just one day during a tour in Japan. Only tracks 3 & 4 (the B side of its original LP equivalent) are e.discogs-relevant, but boy are those tracks relevant. Kirk DeGiorgio of As One claims that "Nobu" is the first ever techno track, and despite the song's lack of repetitive beats the argument makes sense in a way; the alien-sounding, icey synth washes and sequenced pulse of this piece definitely makes it sound amazingly ahead of its time. And "Cantaloupe Island" (an old Hancock standard) is not far behind either with its pre-programmed b-line. All in all a very cool album from a period where Herbie was at his creative peak, and besides its historical value it's also excellent listening. Strange (and a shame) that this was a Japan-only release.
