  • Sunlight

    Sunlight ushered in new era in Herbie Hancock's music, marking a turning point from jazz-funk fusion to more jazz-inflected disco pop. One major component of Sunlight's increased commercial quality was Hancock's use of the vocoder. His processed vocals can be heard on "I Thought It Was You," which became a single and dance-floor hit in the UK, where the album was originally released. Different combinations of the Headhunters back Hancock from song to song, with the exception of "Good Question" featuring Jaco Pastorius on bass, Tony Williams on drums, and Patrick Gleeson manning the synths. This song is also an exception from the set in that it is an intense jazz-rock piece, dominated by Hancock's stunning acoustic piano. "Sunlight" is a funkier song featuring an electronic scat solo from Hancock and a soprano sax solo from Bennie Maupin. Also of note, the instrumental "No Means Yes" is a funk-jazz piece that would have worked on either of Hancock's previous releases.
