Herbie Hancock: “Cantaloupe Island”

20 Jan

Herbie Hancock performed at the state dinner last night. Here’s hoping he did Cantaloupe Island and it was properly appreciated. Herbie was playing Mozart when he was 11; today he’s 70 and going strong. Said Miles Davis: “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.”
