The Prisoner is the seventh Herbie Hancock album, his final on the Blue Note label, released and recorded in 1969. His next record would be on Warner Bros. It is dedicated to the memory of Martin Luther King. Hancock suggested in 1969 that he had been able to get closer to his real self with this album than on any other previous. Hancock praised flute player Hubert Laws on the album, suggesting that Laws was one of the finest flute players in classical or jazz music. As one of the first albums Herbie Hancock recorded after departing Miles Davis' quintet in 1968, as well as his final album for Blue Note, The Prisoner is one of Hancock's most ambitious efforts. Assembling a nonet that features Joe Henderson tenor sax, alto flute, Johnny Coles flugelhorn, Garnett Brown trombone, Buster Williams bass, and Albert Tootie Heath drums, he has created his grandest work since My Point of View.

The Prisoner is the seventh album by Herbie Hancock, his final on the Blue Note label, released and recorded in 1969. Just like his ambitious Speak Like a Child, The Prisoner stands as an example of social statement written in music. The title track wants to express how black people have been imprisoned for a long time. The piece was first heard live in 1968, during a performance at University of California Jazz Festival.

It was Herbie's last album on Blue Note, the label he also recorded Maiden Voyage on four years earlier. It features a larger ensemble about 10 musicians, depending on the track, and includes some of the stellar players of the 60s and 70s, like Joe Henderson Johnny Coles Buster Williams Hubert Laws, and others.
