Maiden Voyage has to be one of my favorites. Really got me into Herbie Hancock. Some superb performances on the album as a whole.

You can add Jon Faddis' mind-blowing trumpet solo at
the breakneck tempo on "Things to Come" fronting the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra on the "They Came to Swing" CD. Amazing!!
