Speak like a child is the sixth album by legendary American jazz pianist Herbie Hancock, recorded and released by Blue Note Records in 1968. Featuring Hancock's arrangements for an unusual front line of alto flute, bass trombone and flugelhorn, the album was described by critic Nat Hentoff as an "impressive further stage in the evolution of Herbie Hancock as writer and player", characterised by a "singular quality of incisive, searching lyricism." None of the wind players perform solos on any song. Tonight the album will be brought to life with the quartets rich sonic textures of Guitar and Vibraphone front line, rising bass star Conor Chaplin and veteran drum legend now resident in the U.K Jeff Williams.
