Saw Herbie Hancock

I saw him playing yesterday on a local jazz festival. Hancock came out with a quintet and played a nice portion of his bebop repertory mixed with some freeform muffins, ace. After that we had a break for about 30 mins to go out and buy drinks/food, something. You could as well talk with certain players, guess what, I talked with Hancock! I asked him how were the sessions for Rivers' Contours, since that's one of my favorite jazz albums ever; he explained to me the process by which it was recorded, performed, and how Rivers arranged it. His voice was deep and inviting, very uplifting tone he had, and I thoroughly enjoyed having a conversation with one of the most prolific pianists in jazz music. Another thing I discovered was that in the up 50's and 60's 'children of my age' (as he said) were really involved in the whole community, and assisted many shows. Hancock thought that it was fantastic to see people my age going to his concert. We had a handshake and a bit after he emerged with a trio & played more mellow, cool/modal stuff, Evans' style. Overall it was an excellent experience and I'm really looking forward to another one of his gigs. Great, great stage presence.
