All the Flavors of Herbie Hancock
"Watermelon Man," finished the show and didn't stray too much from the funky acoustic version most people know. But it was kickin', with Thomas laying out a bad, funky sermon over Colley's throbbing bass and Carrington's hip, expressive beats. And of course Herbie's sassy fingers that punctuated with two-fisted chords and sweet single-note forays into soul and jazz both.
Hancock was true to his word and true to his art. He's a jazz master and an American treasure.
