Newly Remastered for Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl!

The Prisoner is the seventh album by Herbie Hancock, his final on the Blue Note label, released and recorded in 1969. "Generally speaking, I've been able to get closer to the real me on this album than on any other previous one." This is a value judgment of Herbie Hancock, the gifted young upper echelon jazz pianist-composer who left the charismatic and nutritious aura of the Miles Davis group to venture into leading his own band in order to cultivate his imagination and to shape his own musical concepts.

Newly remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.

" of Hancock's most ambitious efforts...Throughout the record, Hancock, Coles, and Henderson exchange provocative, unpredictable solos that build upon the stark melodies and sober mood of the music. The tone is not of sorrow or celebration, but of reflection and contemplation, and on that level, The Prisoner succeeds handsomely..." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine,
