As a huge fan of Joe Lovano I just have to put up a link to this amazing clip! Wow! Mel Lewis Orchestra plays Bob Mintzers great arrangement of Herbie Hancock’s Eye of the Hurricane.
If I got the story right, Bob left the band for another gig, and as an apologize he wrote a coulpe of arrangements. Or a couple of great arrangements..!
I had the pleasure to play with the great Blue House Jazz Orchestra in Stockholm in a project where we played Herbie’s music. (Not together with Herbie though..) I played Baritone and shared this solospot with Inge Peterson on tenor. It was recorded! I’ll see if I can get it!
