Herbie Hancock And The "New Standard All Stars" - Live in Europe

Herbie Live 1997


1995's The New Standard found him and an all-star band including John Scofield, Jack DeJohnette and Michael Brecker interpreting pop songs by contempory Artists. On first glance this record would not seem to have much promise from a jazz standpoint. Herbie Hancock performs a set of tunes which include numbers from the likes of Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Sade, Paul Simon, Prince, the Beatles ("Norwegian Wood") and Kurt Cobain. However by adding vamps, reharmonizing the chord structures, sometimes quickly discarding the melodies and utilizing an all-star band, Hancock was able to transform the potentially unrewarding music into creative jazz. Hancock, who sticks to acoustic piano, shows that he is still in prime form, taking quite a few fiery solos. With Michael Brecker on tenor and surprisingly effective soprano, guitarist John Scofield, bassist Dave Holland, drummer Jack DeJohnette and percussionist Don Alias (along with an occasional horn or string section that was dubbed in later), the results are often quite hard-swinging and certainly never predictable. Although it is doubtful that any of these songs will ever become a jazz standard, Herbie Hancock has successfully created a memorable set of "new" music.

These are the tracks as they appear in your rar file

01 - Opening 0.21

04 - Thieves In The Temple 22.49
05 - You've Got It Bad Girl 36.50
06 - Love is Stronger Than Pride 10.55

Therefore 03 is missing which I presume is Mercy Street

Yes? No?

Greetings:

I too downloaded this amazing quality recording, but I too cannot spread it around because of the missing track. Also, by chance would there be a FLAC version of this available? Music of this caliber and quality should truly be spread losslessly...
