Black Octopus

Black Octopus

Rare Jazz-Funk album from 1978 by Headhunters founder. Featuring an all-star line- up including Herbie Hancock. Originally released in 1978 on Tobisha EMI Japan.

Artist: Paul Jackson

Genre: Funk

Label: Tidal Waves Music

Release date:


His debut album Black Octopus saw the light of day in 1978 and is a total piece of art filled with abstract sticky funky grooves, floating electric piano playing, strong thumping bass lines, raw heavy drums and amazing vocal acrobatics (Jackson himself takes vocals in 3 out of 5 songs, and his soulful singing voice strikes an emotional chord that does not go unnoticed).

On Black Octopus you’ll also find some of the best all-star musicians from the likes of Alphonse Mouzon (Roy Ayers, Betty Davis, Azar Lawrence)...and last but not least fellow Headhunters Bennie Maupin and Herbie Hancock himself.
