With billows and blasts from choirs and orchesters
Buskers and talkers
Big bands and squawkers,
the Stork Club has retained its qualities of decaying elegance and dwindling significance since the late 1950s.

Options April 12, 2020: The Herbiethon
The Stork Club throws a birthday bash marathon for one of the greatest, most eclectic musicians of our time, Herbie Hancock. From his first Quintets through his years with Miles Davis, into his deep dive into worlds electronical (is too a word!), to his many collaborations within and without the realms of jazz, and back to acoustical climes - a musical meander back and forth and back and forth along the Herbie Time Continuum on the advent of his ninth decade among the mortals. The Stork Club goes full Herbie-vore today. No idea how long this thing is gonna stretch, but stop by the Club and stay a while. And then another while.

Looked Back at the comments...think I'm the only one who actually likes Wynton! Yeah, when he was younger he had all sorts of stupid pronouncements about what was REAL jazz, but I always liked his playing (hey, Art Blakey hired him and Branford, I think he was a pretty good talent scout). And he's mellowed as he's gotten older; his Jazz at Lincoln Center series hires and features musicians. And music from all corners of the jazz world these days. (He still gets a bit pompous at times, but I can live with it)

Right on the money for me, Dr. J. Even when he was being kinda ridiculous, he was stimulating and challenging. He tackled Mozart, too and got no credit for it. In a lotta ways the guy couldn't win, and was ahead of his time in being an unapologetically opinionated black man in the "fine" arts.

It's now almost 2:00pm. This show and the last half of Jeff G.'s have made this the best Sunday morning and afternoon I've enjoyed in a long time.

It's remarkable how easily the variety of Hancock's work can fill six hours. You could do the same with Beethoven and Bach--but not with the far more prolific Telemann, whose music I love--a handful of pop artists, and so forth. Not many musicians can endure scrutiny for a stretch like this.

With all the great geniuses in the world, it's hard to avoid monotony after a certain time. Beethoven - hmmm - and it's his 250th birthday all friggin year. So maybe... but what a gigantor task that would be.

Ah, Headhunters - my gateway to Herbie album

We slow danced to this at high school parties, kids.

Still remember buying this down at the mall.

Always love that intro to this version of Watermelon Man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm doctorjazz:

So, Stork, you'll be going until midnight? I'm impressed!
As Dean said, there's so much Hancock, and so much DIFFERENT Hancock, that the hours have just flown by.

Dr. J - yup - I will def make it to the witching hour (in Germany)

Regarding this show, happy to see that steps were taken so that the whole show gets archived, that is unless you keep going to 7 hours or more.

Ladies and gentlemen! For you listening pleasure and edification, one DJ, one performing artist/composer, how far can they go! Should we have alerted Guinness ? Hope you're keeping appropriately hydrated and nourished.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Dave in Vermont:

hydrated, what's that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Little Danny:

Thanks for these meticulous sessionographies. Really enjoying scanning through them all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Dave in Vermont:

that's what the ice cubes are for, i guess
Avatar 5:13pm Wolfgang von Storchenfechter:

The archive should be ok either way - recording it here too natch. I'm at that point now: another cup of coffee - or red wine? I might fall over, but what else is new
  5:14pm Dean:

They shoot storks, don't they?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Little Danny:

haha Dean
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Little Danny:

I wonder if "The Trailor" got any play at Mancuso's Loft parties?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm doctorjazz:

Nothin but the HITS!
  5:16pm cvh:

I'd like to give a shout-out to the track "People Music" from Herbie's "Secrets" album
  5:16pm Dean:

Pretty sure I have the 12" extended dance mix of this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm listener james from westwood:

I edited a huge college-level jazz book last year in which each chapter broke a particular track down chunk by chunk into its components. For Hancock, the author picked one other one, and "Rockit." The description was delightful.
Avatar 5:17pm TDK60:

Hello, back after a short /2nd/ nap of the day. Rockin'! This is quite a marathon. One for the archives. Where's the star for clicking the whole darn show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm listener james from westwood:

Plus it was an excuse to watch this video for pay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Little Danny:

Few moments more galvanizing in turntablism than "Rockit"
  5:22pm Dean:

Man, I love Steve Turre, and I'm not sure how or when I decided that was the case.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm doctorjazz:

I'm with you on Turre, saw him years back, whether on trombone or shells (which he plays without making it seem like a gimmick), he's a great player.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm doctorjazz:

(And he has a Kirk collection, which is cool. And a very cool beard and braid).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm doctorjazz:

(...Kirk connection, that is...)
Avatar 5:29pm Wolfgang von Storchenfechter:

Turre is so amazing - be it trombone or conch. Just incredible - and Akue Dixon Turre, his wife, is also wonderful (cellist)
  5:29pm Dean:

Right, the shells! E.g., Sanctified Shells.

I'm thinking I first ran out to pick up one of his records after reading a review in Cadence decades ago. That's how and when.
Avatar 5:30pm TDK60:

Oh, there it is where it usually is, up by the date.

A desert isle disc (the Shorter[.

Absolutely gorgeous, this Shorter
  5:33pm Dean:

Seems they're now former spouses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm doctorjazz:

Joni's voice really dropped and for Smokey by this record (which is also a great record)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm doctorjazz:

(And became smokey, more typos-I'm the typo king on my phone)
  5:43pm Dean:

This is turning out to be the rare GTD stream show where I note I've been alive at the time of the recording of all the tracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm doctorjazz:

Have "virtual cocktail party" in 10 minutes with some friends. Great show, Stork, you pulled it off! Treat yourself to the top shelf stuff and a well deserved rest!
Good, safe week, all!
  5:55pm Dean:

Easter 2020, a really splendid day. Who'd-a thunk?

Bon voyage, Dr. Jazz! Thanks for sticking it out for so long!! Come on back next week.

Miles, too, obviously.
Avatar 6:08pm StringOFperils:

Miles to Midnight...that's another show
Avatar 6:08pm TDK60:

Long ago I used to DJ in a music club. Not dance music, just listening music on off nights. Played this Guinnevere. Nobody seemed to mind. It was late.
Avatar 6:09pm Wolfgang von Storchenfechter:

Sounds like a show, StringO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Jeff Golick:

Missed the mic break, did you mention Crosby's reaction to hearing this cut (@ Miles' place)?
Avatar 6:10pm Wolfgang von Storchenfechter:

No - tell it, JG!
  6:12pm @fourgrant:

Great set!
Avatar 6:13pm bigplanetnoise:

Love that sitar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Jeff Golick:

"Miles played it for me, but I didn't get it because there's no recognizable part of Guinnevere in it. I was more concerned about my tune than I was in the honor of the fact that he used it as a starting point for one of his records. I was kind of snooty about it. But now, obviously, I am completely thrilled."
Avatar 6:15pm TDK60:

(Jeff?) He said he didn't like it. I think Miles got mad. Later Crosby said he'd been wrong. I figure Mr. Crosby has had to do that more than a few times.
Avatar 6:15pm northguineahills:

Been loving the Miles immersion on GTDS. I need to hit the Herbie hits later in achive-land.
  6:16pm Dean:

Sort of the opposite of the Marshall McLuhan moment in Annie Hall.
Avatar 6:16pm Wolfgang von Storchenfechter:

Oh, wow - did not know this: (wiki) According to David Crosby's 2016 podcast interview with Marc Maron, Davis played it for Crosby at the former's home before releasing it. Crosby did not recognize any resemblance between Davis' version and his composition and Davis kicked him out of his house.
Avatar 6:16pm TDK60:

I can hear the melody, it's just s l o w e d d o w n .

Epic tribute, Stork—many thanks, and go have yourself a good shvitz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Asheville Jon:

great show today! thank you very much!!!!!
Avatar 6:22pm northguineahills:

Well, Miles was known for his short temper.

I still have yet to hear a decent explanation for Mile's 'Willie Nelson'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Wolfgang!
Amazing tribute! and, i notice, the most gold stars i've ever seen on a wfmu episode! congratulations!
take care everyone
  6:23pm Dean:

Cage was on to something. Over time we can pick out *any* melody. For example, between 1980 and 1997 I heard "I Get No Kick from Champagne" thanks to the jets flying overhead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Jeff Golick:

There's a more detailed telling, where Crosby sez Miles puts the cut on, disappears with a lady friend into the bedroom, and leaves Croz out in the living room (in a beanbag chair, I like to imagine) to listen alone.
Avatar 6:23pm TDK60:

This has been special; and my first visit to the Club. Swell joint.

Thanks, profuse thanks all for a wonderful afternoon/evening. What a pleasure to do it - to hear it, and to have all of you on board. Go well, sleep well, wake well, walk well. Be well is what I'm sayin'
Let's Club it again next week, eh?

This is more Herbie Hancock than I've experienced in some time, as far as I can tell. Thanks for keeping the club open late, Stork. Take care.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm WR:

Damn, step away for a few minutes and I miss last call. Stork, seems you had the show planned out to the minute, ending right at 636 PM ET as advertised on the playlist page. Thanks so much for pulling all that together and presenting it to us.
