herbie fully loaded

While having a major Saturday morning vegg out session, I stumbled upon an awesome documentary about legendary jazz musician Herbie Hancock. In Herbie Hancock Possibilities, cameras follow Herbie’s collaborative music making, as he jams with Stevie Wonder, Sting, John Mayer, Christian Aguilera, Paul Simon, John Patitucci, Annie Lennox, Joss Stone, Angelique Kidjo, Damien Rice, Raul Midon, Johnny Lang. Maybe it was my hormones or maybe it was the beautiful music, but I shed a tear or two.

However, my point is this. Herbie Hancock was one of the first musicians to merge new technology and music (who will ever forget Rockit?). But this video is my favorite. Herbie at his best, doing major music voodoo with his state of the art (by 1974 standards) synthesizer.
