Youtube Ballads

Herbie Hancock has always been one of my favourite players. Here are a couple of truly beautiful ballads, one solo and the other featuring the great Joe Henderson. Someone to watch over me, is in particular quite breathtaking, the musical colours and textures Herbie creates, great examples of the things I like most about his piano playing. Reminds me of his poignant Stella by starlight solo with Ron Carter and Tony Williams on Miles Davis famous 1964 live recording; something else to check out too!
