Two of Herbie Hancock's seminal Blue Note albums are now featured on one Blu-Ray audio disc. Empyrean Isles, originally recorded in 1964 and Hancock’s fourth album for Blue Note, debuts two of his most treasured songs: "One Finger Snap" and "Cantaloupe Island." Maiden Voyage, arguably one of Hancock’s greatest albums from the ‘60s, is his fifth Blue Note album, recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in 1965. In 1999, Maiden Voyage was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame.

About Empyrean Isles:
"The results are anything but conventional...Hancock pushes at the borders of hard bop, finding a brilliantly evocative balance between traditional bop, soul-injected grooves, and experimental, post-modal jazz...That passion informs all of Empyrean Isles, a record that officially established Hancock as a major artist in his own right." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine,

About Maiden Voyage:
"Maiden Voyage nevertheless finds Herbie Hancock at a creative peak. In fact, it's arguably his finest record of the '60s, reaching a perfect balance between accessible, lyrical jazz and chance-taking hard bop...While the quintet takes risks, the music is lovely and accessible, thanks to Hancock's understated, melodic compositions and the tasteful group interplay. All of the elements blend together to make Maiden Voyage a shimmering, beautiful album that captures Hancock at his finest as a leader, soloist, and composer." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine,
