Empyrean Isles is the fourth album by American jazz pianist Herbie Hancock, recorded in 1964 for Blue Note Records. The album was recorded at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, on June 17, 1964. Pianist Hancock's quartet consisted of Freddie Hubbard on cornet, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums. The four compositions were written by Hancock.

Empyrean Isles is a soft, gentle jazz album which offers few hints of the funk-fusion departures that would litter Herbie Hancock's later career (though Cantaloupe Island does have a little funk in its step). Aside from Herbie's piano, Freddie Hubbard is the major soloist here, with excellent cornet work which Herbie is wise enough to allow to take centre stage whenever the spirit's on Hubbard.
Herbie Hancock covers strikingly varied terrain on his fourth album, a pinnacle of his small-group acoustic period and a tantalizing glimpse of where he was headed. We hear the core of Miles Davis’ groundbreaking quintet-Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Tony Williams-joining forces with a different trumpeter, the great Freddie Hubbard. One Finger Snap became an uptempo test piece for every jazz player, while Cantaloupe Island, with its loping funk-jazz, caught the attention of hip-hop nation decades later.
Herbie Hancock: Empyrean Isles by Greg Simmons, published on May 24, 2012. Most importantly the weight of the piano chords come through loud and clear.
On Wednesday, 17 June 1964, pianist Herbie Hancock went into Van Gelder Studio, in New Jersey, to record what became Empyrean Isles, his fourth album for Blue Note Records. Listen to Empyrean Isles right now. By then, at the age of 24, the bespectacled, classically-trained Chicagoan was already a rising star in the jazz world. Structurally, Empyrean Isles’ opener, ‘One Finger Snap’, which begins with a fleeting unison theme on cornet and piano, before Hubbard breaks off for a solo, demonstrates Hancock’s propensity to take risks – something that he had learned from working with Miles Davis, who instilled in him the notion that there were no wrong notes or mistakes. Williams and Carter initiate a lightly swinging groove, over which Hubbard lets rip with molten cornet lines while Hancock supports him with subtle staccato punctuation.
