Dom Omladine, Belgrade March 1972 concert program
Original vintage concert program produced for the Herbie Hancock Sextet’s two performances at the Dom Omladine in Belgrade [Serbia] on Thursday, 16th March, 1972, in support of Crossings — Hancock’s tenth album, produced by David Rubinson, and released in May 1972 on Warner Bros. After leaving Blue Note in 1969, Hancock signed with Warner Bros. and became fascinated with electronic musical instruments. Together with the profound influence of Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew (1970), this fascination culminated in a series of albums in which electronic instruments were coupled with acoustic instruments. Hancock’s first ventures into electronic music started with a sextet featuring bassist Buster Williams and drummer Billy Hart, and a trio of horn players: trumpeter Eddie Henderson, trombonist Julian Priester, and multireedist Bennie Maupin — a line-up identical to his touring band.
