CONRAD HERWIG

THE LATIN SIDE OF HERBIE HANCOCK

2010-09-14

During his more then five decades in the recording business Herbie Hancock has covered almost every genre in the Jazz category including several Latin sounds. On this release trombonist Conrad Herwig assembled an all star cast of musicians including band leader and pianist Eddie Palmieri on piano and trumpeter Randy Brecker together for two magical evenings at the Blue Note theater in New York. The result is a magical reinterpretation of some of Herbie Hancock's finest works including Watermelon Man from Herbies 1962 debut Takin' Off. Also featured are the 1965 album title track Maiden Voyage and the classic Cantaloupe Island. These reinterpretations not only remind us of the genius of the original recordings, but breathe new life into them. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
