Herbie Hancock Trio - NYC 1993

Here's another recording supplied by Six String - make sure you thank him.

This is actually a very good live date by Hancock, a player I had given up on many years before.

Not that I thought any less of Hancock, anyone with a career as long lived as his is gonna be susceptible to ups and downs. I just really hadn't given him much thought at all.

Of course he had a string of classic BN lps and that is where these performances are mined from. Bookended with a pair of Cole Porter classics...we're gonna need some help with track 4.

I'm afraid I can't identify #4 - but thanks for this great performance by HH!

Thank you so much for all the great recordings. I think I can identify Track #4: it's a piece by Béla Bartók entitled "Ostinato" (here for two pianos). Herbie Hancock performed it with Chick Corea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKj6TdCct8A
