Jazzspinneriet, October 5th 2013

The October edition of Jazzspinneriet was dedicated to the music of Herbie Hancock. In addition to previously presented material, which is documented elsewhere on this blog, we added this time Hancock’s “Driftin'” and Charles Mingus’ “Goodbye pork pie hat”, which Herbie did with Joni Mitchell on the album “Mingus”. The latter features many interesting changes naturally invites to exploring the alterations and upper structure harmonics as source for musical material in the solos.

Our version of “Good bye pork pie hat” came out in a slow tempo with a 12/8 feel. Here is the piano solo. Driftin’ piano solo is here.


Good bye Pork pie hat, changes.
