Thanks for sharing that. Love me some Herbie.

I just recently re-bought his 1984 album Sound System, even though I was worried it would sound dated and ridiculous... nope! It rocks like a mofo!

His tribute speech following Prince's death was very profound. He brought up Prince's jazz roots that emanated from his jazz pianist father. Herbie is another genuis who doesn't get caught up in labels or genre.

It was typical lazy journalism that the writer didn't reference Hancock's cover of Thieves in the Temple.

Wow... I'd kind of lost my enthusiasm for Thieves over the years, but this has reignited it for me. Thanks!

Aretha is a GOAT but this performance was lackluster to say the least. Herbie's speech is what makes the event worth watching. Generally, I have seen a ton of love for Prince from the jazz community.
