This is a recording session album by Herbie Hancock, one of the greatest pianist/composers in the jazz world, at CBS Sony Studios in Tokyo in 1978. Herbie Hancock's support members at the time of his visit to Japan, Webster Lewis, Alphonse Mouzon, Paul Jackson, Ray Obiedo, Bennie Maupin, and Bill Summers, participated in the recording session. The album features completely different arrangements and compositions of "Butterfly," "Shiftless Shuffle," and "I Tought It Was You," songs that are considered historic classics. The B-side, "I Tought It Was You," is over 15 minutes long and features a lot of vocoder and groovy interplay, while the A1, "Butterfly," has a great arrangement that mixes the mellow and funky. The sound quality is also of CBS Sony's advanced Master Sound specification, which gives the album a crisp and clear sound not found overseas.A1: Butterfly
B1: I Thought It Was You
