Herb's music was well arranged and orchestrated. It was great to learn from because of this. I learned a great deal from the TJB.
The Lonely Bull is another good tune to learn from.
The drumming on Herb's albums is excellent too.
Listen to the live version of A Taste Of Honey. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2Ara...eature=related
Thanks, great cut , Bob, that was a lot jazzier than the original. Herp must be getting old ; )
Was that Branford Marsailis playing soprano with him? ( oo, what his brother might say to him for doing this )..
I loved Sitting Bull and all the other Tjuiana Brass stuff, and the clip still brings back the warmest of memories of listening to it for the first time and feeling so turned on by it.
