Herbie Hancock on the Grammys


Does anyone know the titles of the songs he played with orchestra on the grammys? He teamed up with another fine pianist in the duel set.

The Grammy awards, like the Academy awards, are popularity contests.

They have little to do with artistic talent, originality, and innovation.

Amy Winehouse?
The name of Herbie's album from the early 70s was "Headhunter". It has been remastered on CD and is quite fun.
Amy's popularity is primarily because she is a self admitted (and proud of it) cocaine, heroin, and alcohol addict. Hollywood loves that stuff. In another case a second rate actor (who has a 4 year old daughter for God's sake!) becomes a drug addict and dies. It becomes first page news for 3 days. Young, good looking, rich, admired, pretty girlfriend, 4 year old daughter - nah! Think I'll kill myself.

I was 19 when Hendrix and Joplin died. Was quite broken up, too, but then 19 years are, in general, dumb asses. I saw quotes from 50 year old people sobbing about this drug addict's demise and how much "the world has lost!". Jeez, give me a break!! We'll get the same thing when Winehouse goes - what a loss!!!
What are you talking about?

>re-arrangements of old music
That's pretty much what most jazz recordings are.
Drubin - apparently I don't know what I'm talking about. It was 'album of the year' and not 'record of the year'. Mr. Hancock's recording of re-arranged material beat out ALL artists across ALL genres of music, regardless of innovation and originality. But hey, 43 years is a long run without a jazz winner - so that means there must have been too many mediocre jazz albums that have been released since 1965...ahhh the Grammy's! The same awards organization that gave Christopher Cross album of the year over Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' back in '81.
