The recording session included Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Dexter Gordon on tenor saxophone. The album was a hard bop LP, with its characteristic two horns and a rhythm section.

So even if, in retrospect, Takin' Off is among Hancock's most conventional albums, it shows a young stylist already strikingly mature for his age, and one who can interpret established forms with spirit and imagination. Case in point: the simple, catchy "Watermelon Man," which became a Hancock signature tune and a jazz standard in the wake of a hit cover by Latin jazz star Mongo Santamaria.
