180 gram exact repro reissue, manufactured by Rhino. Herbie Hancock's eighth album, originally released in 1969, featuring Joe Henderson (alto flute, tenor sax), Johnny Coles (trumpet, fluegel horn), Garnet Brown (trombone), Tootie Heath (drums), Buster Williams (acoustic & electric bass) and Hancock (piano). "...a jazzed up finger-popping blast of vintage late-'60s funk, served up with all the compositional sophistication and technical mastery you'd expect from an old Herbie Hancock record. This highly danceable album features instrumental arrangements every bit as engaging and complex as those found on The Prisoner, the final album he recorded for Blue Note earlier that year. But unlike The Prisoner, with its dark and brooding undercurrents, Fat Albert Rotunda is an exuberantly friendly and upbeat joy of an album. Far from being frivolous in tone, the album has a soulful depth which is generously fleshed out by a moody pair of down tempo tracks, 'Tell Me A Bedtime Story' and 'Jessica.'" -- MustHear
