Herbie Hancock 83 today please share your favourite moments. I’ll share my first ever memory of Herbie.
2015, camping around Europe with the family. Stopped at Montreux due to a change of plan and was embarrassingly surprised to find the Jazz Festival was on. Looked at the programme and found that Herbie was doing a gig the next night with Chick Corea. Tickets were dreadfully expensive for four of us, even standing, but I still hadn’t had a 40th birthday present so we wrote it off against that.
Not only was Quincy Jones compèring but it was also Jacob Collier’s international debut. And then we got to see Herbie and Chick do their thing for over an hour. Great.
Sometimes in life things happen like that.
I learned a new word today, thanks!
My love for funk with Just Around The Corner. Still one of the best funk numbers ever.
Great reminder I need to queue this track for tonight’s listening session
Wrong number, should be 83
OMG thanks for the share! First time hearing this track and it’s outstanding… Appreciate it.
