Herbie Hancock - Montreux 1998 (2CD)


Something of a regular at Europe's premier jazz festival, Herbie Hancock's performance at the Auditorium Stravinski during the 1998 event was generally considered one of the great man's very finest appearances at Montreux. Backed by the New Standard All Stars (Michael Brecker - tenor and soprano saxophone, John Scofield - acoustic and electric guitar, electric sitar, Dave Holland - acoustic bass, Jack DeJohnette - drums, electric percussion, Don Alias - percussion) the ensemble were on stage nearly 2 hours. During this extended set they visited the songbooks of Lennon & McCartney, Don Henley, Prince, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder and Sade, all covered in unique Herbie Hancock style. This CD features the sterling show Herbie and Co. played on July 14th '98, in its entirety, taken from the live TV and FM Radio broadcast that was transmitted at the time.
