'Chameleon' Live - Herbie Hancock & Jaco Pastorius

Put Herbie Hancock and Jaco Pastorius on the same track and what do you get?! A jazz/funk explosion!

This song is off of Herbie Hancock's breakthrough 1973 album 'Head Hunters', which was a jazz-funk album, a genre still in it's infancy but thanks to musicians like Miles Davis, was starting to gain momentum.

This version, off the Live Voyage album in 1977, features Herbie and Jaco trade off the bass parts, switching between the keyboard and bass guitar. Later, Herbie plays some interstellar key work. Sax is played by Bennie Maupin and drums by James Levi.

Funk it baby!

  1. Sax is disappointing. Herbie and Jaco never disappoint. Nice to hear them together.
