1973 saw the release of Herbie Hancock's influential jazz-fusion record Head Hunters, which not only dramatically re-arranged the landscape of modern jazz music, but proved to be a major commercial success for the prolific keyboardist/piano player. Anticipation was running high for the follow-up, which was released the year after, following a dramatically stripped down Japan-only release, Dedication. Thrust was released in 1974, featuring much of the same lineup behind Head Hunters, save for percussionist Mike Clark replacing Harvey Mason on drums. Critical opinions were markedly positive for Thrust, which was deemed an incredibly worthy follow-up to the game-changing Head Hunters. Like its predecessor it featured four tracks of quality jazz-funk performed across nearly 40 minutes. Hancock's backing band the Headhunters sound as drum-tight as before, with the addition of Mike Clark adding a distinctly groovier sound to the proceedings, and Hancock's newly acquired ARP Synthesizer adding a glossy sheen. (And an early look at the techno experimentation he'd undertake in the 1980s.) Regularly overshadowed by Head Hunters, but not one to sleep on, whether a fan of Herbie Hancock or jazz in general, fusion or otherwise.
