NTSC/Region 0. a classic evening with the brilliant pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, whose trio here features legendary bassist Ron Carter and the exciting drummer Billy Cobham. Together, three jazz stars conjure extraordinary sounds on seven extended tracks, including compelling originals from Hancock and Carter, and an exciting new take on the standard 'Willow Weep for Me'. Deftly and tastefully shot in 1984 in Lugano, Switzerland, before an attentive and enthusiastic audience, the performance comes to a sharp edged life in this presentation, which avoids distracting effects for close-ups and revealing angles; dramatizing Ron Carter's amazing precise bass figures, and Cobham's spontaneous, rapid-fire drumming and textural choices, that serve and enhance the amazing music being created turning from the synthesizers and electronica that, with albums like Head Hunters and hit singles like 'Rockit', made him a pop star, Hancock revives the amazing technique that made him a childe prodigy of classical piano and a mainstay of the benchmark Miles Davis quintet of the 1960's. with dazzling creative interplay and many chances for each artist to shine, the evening becomes a testament to the persistence of jazz greatness in the post-fusion era. Immortal. 2005.
