AllMusic Review by

Buyer beware! This is as unessential a Herbie Hancock collection as any out there, featuring some of his most banal, listless, and overtly funky music that does not include any of his best-known works in that vein. Thrown in for good measure are some acoustic piano-based hard bop numbers, one being Booker Ervin's "Scoochie" featuring a barely audible Hancock. The credits give it all away, as the producers of this tripe could not find the composer of six of these tracks, an inexcusable indication that no homework was done prior to the release of this eminently avoidable CD. Mastercuts? Come on!
