TAPER'S NOTES
"It was college vacation... i think the music is fantastic.
this will blow the minds of people expecting Herbie in his more pop or jazz modes. - 'Scorch' was a local guy who would sometimes sit in with visiting jazz groups. I dont know his real name or what happened to him. Dont expect the Headhunters on this, folks. This is all Sextant material. Its pretty out there, in the best possible way. Enjoy!

  5. hey,
    many many thanks for the hancock files, especially the mwandishi stuff... I was looking a long time for some live recordings from that period....
    I'm a musician and I'm posting my own music at http://emptyblaukraut.blogspot.com/
    we're not really jazz musicians, more free improvising, freak folk, krautrock, electronic music...
    but if you're open minded and open eared maybe there is something in our music what you like....
    all the best for your blog

  7. hey mate loving the herbie and the strata east! some quality stuff there.

    Was wondering if you fancied a link? I'm happy to add yours since i love what you're doing here and would really appreciate it if you did the same.

    http://analogged.blogspot.com/

    By the way if you're a herbie man you should check out Dedication (it was a japanese only release recorded in a single day that he had off from touring with Miles). It's a great album and the track Nobu is brilliant.

    Gildas 12 : Could you give me a limk to any info you have on the PBS session ? I've acquired a bootleg vinyl which I think contains that and some other things, want to research it a little before posting.

  13. Ever played that bassline and found that its really hard to actually stop playing it? It's the perpetual motion machine of basslines.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Dope!!! Thanks for gathering all of this amazing music, you made my weekend and it's not even Friday yet.

    Herbie is one of my favorite musicians and the '70s brings out that experimental side which I can't get enough of...

    Thank You Simon!!

  16. Hi guys,
    As part of the Mwandishi solo albums series, in which I posted solo albums by Buster Williams and Julian Priester, I’ve now added posts of Bennie Maupin’s ”Jewel in the Lotus” (1974) and ”Moonscapes” (1978)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Absolutely amazing stuff, Simon. I checked out your 4Brothers post when it went up, but this extended version is just ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks analog6, glad you're enjoying it.

    Just did a slight post alteration : the "You are what you hear" link now goes to EIGHT recent Hancock dates, including a 1999 "Headhunters" show in Munich with

    Herbie Hancock : Keyboards

    Bill Evans : Tenor and soprano saxophones

    Daryll Jones : Electric bass

    Wah Wah Watson : Electric guitar

    Ndugu Chancler : Drums

    MIno Cinelu : Percussion

  19. Hi to people subscribed to this Herbie thread :

    Well one of the downsides of linking to so many other blogs when I do posts is that blogs disappear, and my links become useless....

    What this means is that I've just spent an hour trying to find new blog links for many of the live Hancock shows.

    Some success, but the ones that are 'gone' are :

    Baker's Keyboard Lounge, Detroit, Michigan, USA, 1972

    Fairfield Theatre East Lansing, Michigan, USA, October 28, 1973

    If anyone downloaded those ones and feels inclined to upload them, it would be much appreciated!

    ( or if you know of other locations where they may be ... but I've looked pretty hard)

    Thanks!
    Simon

  26. ALERT
    Former Miles Davis pianist, John Beasley, did a super tribute album to HH called Letter to Herbie. AND, he is touring with Herbie's bandmates, Buster Williams and Bennie Maupin, along with the propulsive Jeff Tain Watts in London at Ronnie Scott's and Jazz Bakery in Los Angeles. Geez!!! If you are lucky to be in these cities ck this smoking band out and get the album. It's getting lots of radio play and great reviews. On Beasley's site it said the album is being considered for a Grammy. Beasley's always been a musicians' musician.

  79. I discovered your blog while searching for some of Herbie's sheet music. Fantastic stuff you have here. Introduced my son to it, and he's very excited by the music here. Keep doing what you're doing because this music just keeps a certain spirit alive that sustains me, and I know it sustains a whole lot of folks out there as well from all over the world. Warm regards.

  82. Hey there, I just saw your comment now (!!) Shame on me...

    Did you manage to get the PBS video. It is indeed part Wheather report part Headhunters. I burned it on DVD with menu and all. I can do a copy for you; no problem

    Comparing to what you did for fusion jazz, it is the less I can do to thank you !

    Cheers

  83. Hey Gildas -
    I actually managed to get hold of that last week and am going to post soon. Thanks anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Good 4U !! I remember when waiting for that video; I was as excited as when I got my hands on a live session in 1995 by hip-hop band Digable Planets (well on audio - by the way, if anyone got video from that period...)!

    Vid quality is not good and sound quite alright but ..it is simply HISTORY !!

    Have you seen the 8mn video of Mwandishi band in Molde starting with Eddie Henderson big head !?

    Check it on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lTimyz9T7k

    Cheers

  85. Simon666, (sorry to interrupt), You don't have the Herbie Hancock Quartet (with Michael Brecker) "Live at Suntory Hall, Tokyo"? I'd really love to hear it...

    ReplyDelete
  86. Nope sorry no live with M Brecker
    Cheers

    Oh talking about rare stuff: IF ANYONE CAN HELP HERE !! feel free to contact me

    I am looking for the video of the show from Donald
    Byrd + Blackbyrds + Mizell Brothers, on July 5th 1973 in Montreux(see link who also mentions Nathan Davis ..ouh LOrd !!)
    http://www.montreuxsounds.com/detail2006.php?fiche=214

    For your info: there were 5 sessions by Blue Note that year during the festival. one with Bobby Hutcherson, one with Bobbi Humphrey, one with Marlena Shaw, one with Ronnie Foster and one with Dr Byrd

    But you know this BN serie, right!

    PS bis: I wrote to some guy at Montreux Video; they got it but don't know where and won't release it

    THOUGH you can see 3mn of this show in the Mizell documentary from Red Bull Musci Academy - Melbourne 2006

    I wrote to them as well...no more available

    So if anyone knows Donald Byrd or Mizell brothers personaly ...

    Cheers

  91. The New Standards Band Live In Europe (with Michael Brecker) is unavailable as well. The Sendspace file has expired. Does anyone have it? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Probably best to ask at Smuggled Sounds .... though I'd advise being less rude and demanding than the people on the comments thread there ...

    ReplyDelete
  93. Will do; thanks. If I get it, I'll let you know so perhaps you can host it somewhere else.

    If anyone happens to get their hands on "Live a Suntory Hall", please let me know....

  95. hi, simon
    I really appreciate your effort for uploading alll these wonderful lives of herbie hancock

    i was wondering though if you can upload this one, which is herbie hancock's 2005 the headhunters at Bonnaroo music festival...

    ReplyDelete
  96. Don't have that one sorry Aaron ... if you come across it, drop a link back here ok ?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great stuff. If you add new shows, do you always add them on the bottom, or do I have to check the complete list if there are new shows?

    ReplyDelete
  98. hi anonymous -
    a while since updating this thread, but if I make changes or additions I'll note them here

    ReplyDelete
  99. Huge thank you for making these recordings available! The Mwandishi-band is by far one of my absolute favorite constellations from this time, pure joy to listen to! Too bad some of the links have disappeared (the Baker's Lounge esp) but hell, I'm happy anyway!

    Thanks again!

  100. Hi Simon,

    Thank you for all the wonderful concerts on this site! I have a question....There is 1 concert I'm desperately looking for and that is the V.S.O.P. II : NHK Hall, Tokyo 19.5.1983 concert. The link you refer to on this site doesn't work. Is there any way you can upload that concert again. It will be much appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Sorry Marc, I've mainly held on to the 70s concerts, the rest were just links. If you manage to get a file please tell us here!

    I've noticed a torrent version :

    Also a youtube video, 86 mins :

  102. Thanks for the reply Simon. I've already noticed the youtube version but I had hoped for better audio quality. I'm gonna check out the torrent version. Thanks and if I have managed to get a good audio file I will upload it to you!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Hi Simon

    i am looking for the Nakano Sun Plaza, Tokyo, Set. 29, 1978

    can you help me to find this great concert

    ReplyDelete
  105. thank you for the great list. is it possible to have a fresh link for the arhus gig (it is megaupload)?

    ReplyDelete
  106. Hi chris_c -

    I lost some of these in an HD crash sometime ago, and while I still have some of them, I'm unfortunately missing that one .

    Can anyone else on this thread upload the Aarhus show ?

    ReplyDelete
  107. For those of you looking for the shows with dead links... plus some others, check out http://tela.sugarmegs.org/alpha/h.html or sugarmegs streaming server. They've got the Baker's Keyboard Lounge and the Fairfield Theatre sets that went missing, plus a wicked Mwandishi era set not listed here and the best Headhunters set I ever heard (Tivoli Copenhagen '71 and Boston Jazz Workshop '73 respectively). They also have tons of live Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and others for those interested. Extremely recommended!!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hi Jacob - thanks for your post and a reminde rthat I need to fix this thread. The sugarmegs ones are pretty low quality, I've got better - I'll do a re-upload of most of the 70s concerts over the next few days, including the Tivoli one (which is, btw, in the list above)
    Simon

    ReplyDelete
  109. Everything from the 70s is now re-uploaded except for Strata Gallery in Detroit (so about 15 re-ups). For several I have replaced the original versions with lossless versions .

    ReplyDelete
  110. Thank you Kind Sir, I have only downloaded one MWANDISHI show at present but I thought it was more important to thank you than to keep downloading. I fully understand your position and may only download 1 or 2 more shows. Again thank you for something I would not be able to hear without your generosity.

    ReplyDelete
  111. hey James, thanks for the comment :)

    Everyone - the Strata Detroit show has now also been added, so we have a complete 70s set.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Thanks for the effort. I hope you are planning to reup more broken links...

    ReplyDelete
  113. Thanks so much Simon & everyone for the original Mwandishi live & solo threads & for these live re-ups - I needed to 'upgrade' my collection & missed a couple first time round. Basically this Mwandishi & the Teramasu Hino collecton posts are two of the best threads ever put up anywhere in blogland...
    Cheers,
    HJ

  114. Thanks for the comments guys :) danielfa, tell me which broken links on the relevant threads, and I'll get to them when I can.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Thank you so much, Simon666! I missed some of these sets the first time around, and am incredibly excited to listen to them now. For the record, the Tivoli Copenhagen '71 set I mentioned is a different set than the one listed. It features about 3 minutes of "Wiggle Waggle" and a staggering, breathtaking 57 minutes of "Wandering Spirit Song". The Headhunter's set I also mentioned (Boston Jazz Workshop '73) is the "second set" that Herbie himself mentions at the end of the Mwandishi Boston '73 set listed at the top. Pretty cool to think that Herbie went from ethereal, spacey Mwandishi to funky Headhunters all in the same day! Anyway, kudos to you, Simon666. I'm a Mwandishi maniac, and I have you to thank for the bulk of my live Mwandishi collection.
    May this music never die, nor be forgotten,
    Jacob

    ReplyDelete
  116. Oops! My apologies... The Headhunters set was a bit later that year (October), not the "third" set that Herbie referred to in the March set listed above. Anyway, thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Here is another show that I found for you on this website, Dated 11.11.75 from Kansas City Mo

  121. Forgot to mention I have Hancock with Michael Brecker, Buster Williams & Al Foster
    @ Montreux Festival 7/7/88. Great, at least the music but the sound is so-so. Let me know if you want I send it to you.
    And thanks again for all the marvels on your blog !

    ReplyDelete
  122. Thanks for all this wonderful live Mwandishi stuff (w/ Gleeson!). I've been waiting ages to hear what that was really like.
    This is much more than a "blog post", this is a monumental labor of love - well done!

  123. Hi everyone, new post (first in 18 months!) : 'Herbie Hancock - Man with a Suitcase' - a compilation of Herbie Hancock's fender rhodes playing on other people's records 1968-1978.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Hi Joseph, it's working for everyone else, so the problem must be with your computer or your security systems. Try and download from someone else's house.

  126. Hey man thank you so much for making this happen AND work!!

  129. Hello! I just now, somehow, found your wonderful and absolutely generous blog with much shared music. THANK YOU! Your question may be as dead as "all the dead links" BUT - if I CAN HELP, let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Hi Children's Well-Being -
    It's all good in this list up from 1971 to 1985 , but all the links are dead after that - it was mostly me linking to other blogs. Anything you have after 1985 would be great!
