Sloan are great. I can't think of another band who will change instruments with each other and still sound fantastic. It's like watching that Macca video where he plays everything. :)

Yes! Absolutely. Columbia/Sony finally released an Essential Herbie Hancock collection yesterday, which is long over-due. (Part of their 2 CD Essential Series) It has everything from "Cantaloupe Island" to "Watermelon Man" to "Chameleon" to "Rockit."

I was lucky enough to see him with the Headhunters at a small club on Beale Street in Memphis several years ago. Really cool guy. I got to meet him after the show.

I bought a Herbie hancock compilation CD in Brazil in 2002 at a very cheap price (something like US$ 5) that has all the tracks you mentioned and more !! It contains the best of his career since the late 60's through late 80's. All tracks are amazing !!
BTW, I believe that CD is part of a CD series on jazz men based on a fellow that produced a series of documentaries on jazz. I forgot his name. These documentaries were on TVs around the world a few years back.

Oh yeah - Ken Burns. He did the Jazz Series. Martin Scorsese did the Blues series.

I think it's an interesting life - especially if you get paid for that :D

I just thought it could be a front for you - to cover your actual objectives - like a spy :wink: (I've watched too many spy flicks).

Artist of the day: I take MARVIN GAYE.

The man was a great soulful singer and composer.
And he sure knew how to handle LOVE to the ladies - his music was so sensuous, so "up for it", so emotion-driven, so horny, he'd get them all ladies on their fours, oozing for him...... 8) :twisted:
