"As one musician of the time put it, once that record came out, you heard 'Watermelon Man' everywhere; kids were playing it on jukeboxes, it was on the radio, guys were trying to do it in the subway. You knew at once it was special." - Penguin Guiude To Jazz "Very few jazzmen have had the chance to score such a tremendous hit with their first album as Herbie Hancock did with Takin' Off. It presented the bluesy hit 'Watermelon Man' to the world. The song would be covered by countless bands and performed in every imaginable style, subsequently becoming one of the most famous jazz standards. This is an album whose contrasts announce the exceptional diversity of an unparalleled career." - Jazz Magazine"
