The Big City

”The more susbtantial an individual’s aesthetic experience is, the sounder his taste, the sharper his moral focus, the freer—though not necessarily the happier—he is.."

Herbie turned a forever-ageless 80 earlier this month. He still makes music and plays like this.

“Hang Up Your Hang Ups” is my very favorite track from his funk era, it’s on Man-Child which you should own, along with Thrust, Sextant, and Head Hunters. This stuff is all at back-catologue prices—Thrust is $4.99!!!!!— and is prime choice.

“He gets it! He knows music!”
