The V.S.O.P. Quintet

V.S.O.P. was an American jazz quintet consisting of Herbie Hancock (piano, keyboards, synthesizers and vocals), Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone and soprano saxophone), Ron Carter (bass), Tony Williams (drums) and Freddie Hubbard (trumpet and flugelhorn). Hancock, Shorter, Carter, and Williams had all been members of the Miles Davis Quintet during the 1960s.

V.S.O.P. was essentially a live band: it produced only one studio album (Five Stars in 1979) and four live albums.

The name V.S.O.P. is taken from a grade of Cognac brandy, where it signifies aged (and implicitly high quality) stock.
