  • clercqie Yeah, can't wait to hear the collab between him and FlyLo. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw the tracklist.

  • clercqie ... because many left halfway through. Still, not to brag, but I'm more used to electronic stuff, so I thought the combination was really refreshing. The pieces had some weird retro and futuristic feel to them at the same time. And the finale was really something else: more traditional interplay between the acoustic instruments, very subdued and personal. I was very impressed!

  • clercqie Yes, it was superb. First and foremost, probably the best sounding set I've ever heard on a festival site. And it was very experimental: Hancock on piano and synths, and Shorter on clarinet. Most pieces started off with eerie soundscapes from the synthesizer, over which Shorter improvised with melodies, to which the improv on piano from Hancock was the response. It was a weird mishmatch between ambient music, jazz and modern classical. Probably a bit too out there for a lot of people...

  • clercqie Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock yesterday on the same stage: absolutely otherworldly!

  • zakalwe Having given Spirit of Eden a listen and feeling like I'd had the kitchen sink hurled at me I went and bought the CD. Love it!
