  • Directstep

    Directstep was another of Herbie Hancock's Japanese-only releases, and was actually recorded in Tokyo. What's significant about this album is that it was a direct-to-disc recording, an audiophile process that preserves sound quality by eliminating the use of tape - but also only allows for one take. Perhaps because of this, and in order to achieve the layers of electronic texture he wanted, Hancock recruited a second keyboardist for the recording, Webster Lewis. Also in the studio were Bennie Maupin (woodwinds), Paul Jackson (bass), Bill Summers (percussion), Ray Obiedo (guitar), and Alphonse Mouzon (drums). Together they recorded an extended version of "I Thought It Was You," the single from Sunlight, making it even more electronic, and shake up the rhythms of "Butterfly" from Thrust. One of the first albums to be released on CD, the LP sound quality is far superior, especially in the bass and drums.
