    Note right below video/audio of this album, here in full...plus it's 1 of the greatest cd buys new on Amazon cheap...

    May have posted this anecdote long ago here, forget though, if so.

    Sometime between 1983-86 on one day went to visit PMA (now defunct Philadelphia Music Academy, college of music) & was allowed to listen to a few hours of tapes recorded there of when Stanley Clarke was 19 y.o. attending college there along with his close friend Gerry Brown, recorded together playing inside one of PMA's studio rooms. You could hear the immediate musical chemistry together while they schooled at PMA and at this young age both exhibited world class technical, emotional & soulful playing of their instruments together.

    The School Days famous song and full album is a fine recollection writing of their earliest days as bassist & drummer, like a hand in a glove, so well integrated and recorded superbly, again capturing the moment of their collaboration.

    PBS TV is now airing a 2018 fusion special 1 hour show of Herbie Hancock on "Austin City Limits". Believe the same may also be seen on pbs.org or maybe even more than 1 hour long there possibly. HH, James Genus, Vinnie Colaiuta and Terence Martin. It's a great show to catch if you can & hopefully will be shown often there. Nice to hear the new take on tunes by this line-up. Some super subtle nuances expressed by all in their interpretations, yet keep true to original thematic structure.

    Herbie started as a classical pianist, very well accomplished before moving into straight-ahead & small group jazz. Then he followed with his unique groundbreaking synth ideas in fusion, and later fused those & more current electronic renderings in later varied projects.

    The absolute best performance I ever heard of the classical Gershwin entire work "Rhapsody in Blue" was actually performed by a full classical orchestra featuring Herbie Hancock on grand piano. This full piece was also televised on PBS, and think it may be found on their website. It is still not up on youtube yet, maybe a licensing thing. If it ever is shown again on TV, it is quite spectacular to hear & see. Have heard all the famous versions of this piece, even have most of those at home on reel tape factory releases - many, as big fan of this composition, but still like HH - PBS version the best.

    We could actually call this an early fusion adventure as GG wrote it intentionally to blend jazz and classical music together and in movement parts. Gosh, it seems this work was created just for the later Herbie Hancock, as the fit was so perfect with his musical personality. I couldn't think of any pianist better suited for this than HH, even GG himself. Many pure classicists attempt the jazz movements as stiff, lifeless, flat, dry musical notes on a page, lacking the soul of HH's interpretation. And many pure jazz-only artists don't feel the classical grandiose of the piece, thus the 2 musical schools divide greatly attempting to play this work on many recordings. Herbie has mastered both genres, his jazz inflection & schooled classicism allows him the total perspective to accomplish this work as originally intended, as if it were written for him many years earlier.
