Fancy Dancer is the fifth studio album by American jazz flautist Bobbi Humphrey, recorded in 1975 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars, stating: "There isn't anything approaching a middling moment here -- this is all killer, no filler. Jazz critics may have had their troubles with this set, but no one cared; Humphrey and the Mizells were creating a new kind of largely instrumental funk that was inclusive of everything they could weave in from world music to soul-jazz to club music to pop -- and the public responded".[2]
