    Herbie Hancock - Chameleon

    15:45

    I'm tired of great songs being brutally severed into multiple videos. Enjoy funking out to this uncut, studio rendition of Chameleon, from the 1973 album Head Hunters. No copyright intended.

    The image on the album cover, designed by Victor Moscoso, is based on an African mask that is associated with the Baoulé tribe from Côte d'Ivoire. The family of such masks is known as Goli. Their presence is called upon in times of danger, during epidemics or at funeral ceremonies. The image is also based on tape head demagnetizers used on reel-to-reel audio tape recording equipment at the time of this recording. -Wikipedia

    p.s.- My apologies if you see any ads on this video. I have no control over their placement, nor where any of that revenue goes. I doubt very much Mr. Hancock sees a dime of it, so I'd advise not clicking them. If you prefer to browse the web without constant interruptions and distractions, I recommend using Ad Block Plus, and chipping in with a donation to its creator at

    *Addendum: I have noticed a new advertisement on this video stars Mr. Hancock himself, teaching a specialized jazz course online. For those of you who may be musically inclined (and who already have some talent), it seems like participating might be a worthwhile endeavor. Here is a link in case you missed the ad, or it has been replaced by the time you read this:

    Best of luck if you decide to try it. If anyone does, please consider leaving some feedback about your experience in the comments to share with other aspiring musicians and fans of Herbie's music. We'd love to hear how it went.

    Thanks.

    Herbie Hancock is an award-winning jazz composer and musician with a rich, stylistically diverse canon of songs that include Maiden Voyage and Rockit.

    “The thing that keeps jazz alive, even if it's under the radar, is that it is so free and so open to not only lend its influence to other genres, but to borrow and be influenced by other genres. That's the way it breathes.”
    —Herbie Hancock

    Synopsis

    Born on April 12, 1940, in Chicago, Illinois, piano great Herbie Hancock worked with Donald Byrd and Miles Davis while developing his own jazz recording career, beginning with his debut album, Takin' Off. Hancock explored a number of genres, as seen on albums like Mwandishi and Head Hunters, and had a 1980s hit with the mix-fest Rockit. A film composer as well, he has won an Academy Award and many Grammy Awards.

    Background and Education

    Born on April 12, 1940, in Chicago, Illinois, Herbert Jeffrey Hancock began studying piano when he was 7 years old. A few years later, as a tween, he was playing Mozart with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He began to enjoy jazz compositions during his high school years and, upon entering Grinnell College in 1956, decided to focus on electrical engineering. The major initially seemed more practical and allowed him to invest in his passion for technology. Yet Hancock decided to switch over to music composition and formed his own group, later moving to New York to play with trumpeter Donald Byrd.

    Album Debut: 'Takin' Off'

    Herbie Hancock landed a record deal with Blue Note and released his debut album as the head of a band, Takin' Off, which garnered fame as the first album on the Blue Note roster to feature all newly composed tunes, like the seminal Watermelon Man. While continuing to record and pen future classics like Cantaloupe Island and Maiden Voyage, Hancock played with Miles Davis. Starting in 1963, he would be part of the bandleader's group for several years, with the two influencing each other's sound and Davis introducing Hancock to the electric piano.

    Musical Explorer

    Over the ensuing years, via the release of dozens of albums, Hancock established a reputation as an outstanding composer who feels free to explore genres outside of traditional jazz, ranging from fusion to R&B to hip-hop. The sonically radical, mystical and revered Mwandishi (1970) was followed a bit later by the funk-based, platinum-certified Head Hunters (1973); the album featured Chameleon and another version of Watermelon Man, whose sexy grooves would later be sampled in hip-hop/reggae circles. 1977's Sunlight featured rejuvenating soul with Hancock himself on vocoder vocals.

    He continued playing in different forms, including stints with the V.S.O.P. quintet that reunited members of Davis' band. 1983's Future Shock featured the award-winning, blipped-out single Rockit, known for its MTV coolness.

    The following decades saw more releases on different labels, including Dis Is Da Drum (1994), Gershwin's World (1998), honoring George Gershwin's 100th birthday, and the electronica-oriented Future 2 Future (2001). 2010's The Imagine Project saw the composer working with an international cast that included Céu, Pink, Seal and Juanes.

    Film/TV Scores and Awards

    Hancock has also provided scores to a number of TV and film projects. He penned music for Bill Cosby's Fat Albert cartoon and an accompanying album as well as for films like Death Wish (1974), A Soldier's Story (1984) and Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling (1986). He won an Academy Award for the score to 'Round Midnight (1986), co-starring in the project as well.

    By 2013, Herbie Hancock had won 14 Grammy Awards, including for album of the year in 2008, for his tribute to friend Joni Mitchell, River: The Joni Letters—marking the first time in more than four decades that the award went to a jazz musician. The album featured artists like Tina Turner, Norah Jones and Leonard Cohen.

    Watermelon Man

    6:32

    Hancock re-recorded the tune for Head Hunters (1973), combining synthesizers with a Sly Stone and James Brown funk influence, adding an eight-bar section. Hancock described his composition Chameleon, also from Head Hunters, to Down Beat magazine in 1979: In the popular forms of funk, which I've been trying to get into, the attention is on the rhythmic interplay between different instruments. The part the Clavinet plays has to fit with the part the drums play and the line the bass plays and the line that the guitar plays. It's almost like African drummers where seven drummers play different parts; Watermelon Man shares a similar construction. A live version was released on the double LP Flood (1975), recorded in Japan.

    On the intro and outro of the tune, percussionist Bill Summers blows into a beer bottle imitating hindewhu, a style of singing/whistle-playing found in Pygmy music of Central Africa. Hancock and Summers were struck by the sound, which they heard on the ethnomusicology LP, The Music of the Ba-Benzélé Pygmies (1966), by Simha Arom and Genviève Taurelle.

    Machine Lyrics:

    Rising above tension below
    Learn from the in-between
    Blinded by trust, asleep to the truth
    Awakened by disbelief
    Somewhere I found strength in my soul
    Still you refuse to see

    Are you sure I'm not all right?
    'Cause lately I've been feeling fine!
    Every lifeline leads its own way to the heavens
    But I have seen you run in circles, unforgiven
    Is there anything in this world that can make you stop?!
    Oh, you're a machine!

    A world of your own
    Hollow inside
    Careful when worlds collide
    I'm filling my life
    With all it can hold
    Carry it on with pride

    Are you sure I'm not all right?
    Cause lately I've been feeling fine!
    Every lifeline leads its own way to the heavens
    But I have seen you run in circles, unforgiven
    Is there anything in this world that can make you stop?!
    Oh, you're a machine!

    The sun's still above
    All the rain that's coming down
    And I can feel the clouds drifting away
    And now the sky is open wide!
    Turn the light on, you will see things
    So much clearer
    Ohh, but there's no heart
    Oh, there's no heart, and I've spent all this time feeling
    Something you can't feel at all!
    You're a machine!
    Oh, you're a machine.

    Herbie Hancock - Hang Up Your Hang Ups

    7:29

    Review by Jim Newsom: Perhaps the funkiest album of Herbie Hancock's early- to mid-'70s jazz/funk/fusion era, Man-Child starts off with the unforgettable Hang Up Your Hang Ups, and the beat just keeps coming until the album's end. Sun Touch and Bubbles are slower, but funky nonetheless. Hancock is the star on his arsenal of keyboards, but guitarist Wah Wah Watson's presence is what puts a new sheen on this recording, distinguishing it from its predecessors, Head Hunters and Thrust. Others among the all-star cast of soloists and accompanists include Wayne Shorter on soprano sax, Stevie Wonder on chromatic harmonica, and longtime Hancock cohort Bennie Maupin on an arsenal of woodwinds.

    Herbie Hancock: Live from The BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival

    36:46

    Hear the radio episode here:

    Herbie Hancock always seems to be on some kind of voyage. Whether he's improvising in a spaceship surrounded by 11 keyboards or forming new iterations of bands, you can always count on him to push the possibilities and the boundaries of jazz.

    This concert presentation includes the most recent member of the group: Terrace Martin, who's collaborated with Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar. It also features Lionel Loueke on guitar and vocals, James Genus on bass, and Trevor Lawrence Jr. on drums.

    On this radio episode, Jazz Night in America host Christian McBride sits down with Hancock to discuss his technological journey over the years. We'll also hear stories from Herbie's longtime keyboard tech, Bryan Bell, and a testimonial from Paris Strother, keyboard player for the R&B trio KING.
