HERBIE HANCOCK: Live In Chicago 1977 (CD) by Herbie Hancock featuring Jaco Pastorius

Live In Chicago 1977 (CD)

Herbie Hancock featuring Jaco Pastorius, live at Ivanhoe Theater, Chicago, February 16th 1977.

By 1977 Herbie Hancock was firmly established as America’s leading purveyor of jazz-funk. This superb performance finds him playing with Weather Report’s legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, as well as Bennie Maupin (tenor sax / bass clarinet) and James Levi (drums). Broadcast on the local WXRT-FM, it offers a setlist anchored in his Head Hunters era, but also offers a track from Maupin’s superb Slow Traffic To The Right album. It’s presented here with background notes and images.
