|Herbie Hancock chronology|
Dedication is the sixteenth album by Herbie Hancock. It was recorded in Japan in 1974 while Hancock was touring and first released on the Japanese CBS Sony label in September 21, 1974. Hancock performs "Maiden Voyage" and "Dolphin Dance" acoustically, while "Nobu" and "Cantaloupe Island" were performed on electric keyboards. It has never been released on CD outside Japan, but is available on Amazon MP3 and iTunes.
The track "Nobu" is regarded by many (including Kirk Degiorgio of As One) as the first ever techno track, due to its other-worldly repetitive electronic groove.
