All the Flavors of Herbie Hancock

By Published: March 12, 2004
"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.
