The music was inspired by the work of Herbie Hancock. We began with modal jazz funk and moved to variations of Honky Tonk, where HH is playing I think three different pianos with Miles Davis. Recorded in DC in the 1970’s these sets are an extrapolation of the late sixties work In a Silent Way which we also played… I am a sucker for variations and the inability to repeat anything the same –so I love to play these so called same songs back to back…Honky Tonk lasts for more than an hour when you play all five versions together and they bleed into each other… this and silent way are about as far as I can go with electronic Jazz…they have everything I love about Jazz—improv, spontaneity, syncopation and in these tunes funk… I ended with HH first album Maiden Voyage, classic and also The Piano which is solo work which is nice to end on after everyone is a little drunk and tired… a great night… thank you Herbie!

One thought on “Restaurant 1508 #3

  1. I am curious about your home restaurant and read on the CCCA website that June dates are available. However, I can't find more information on your Home Restaurant link from your blog. Are they open to newcomers?
