Come Into Knowledge - Lecture #7: Herbie Hancock
Slowly but surely, May 25th is approaching, and that means our next installment of “Come Into Knowledge” is comin’ up and for this time we’ll put the spotlight squarely on one of the greatest of all time, -genre boxes be damned-, and for that reason decades-long ahead of the curve: the legendary-in-our-lifetime Mr. Watermelon Man himself, Herbie Hancock.
Music, in general, would be a lot less fun, hadn’t he been around: from his days on Blue Note Records in the ’60s to simultaneously being a sideman in Miles’ 2nd great quintet that same period to his Afro-futuristic approach under the name Mwandishi to fully embracing Funk, and later Disco, and later Hip Hop and… you name it, he’s probably done it.
Like last month, when we had ‘Prince-a-holic’ Dave Coenen providing us the knowledge, we now invite ‘Herbie Head’ Baraka G. for the proceedings, giving us insight into the Maestro’s thought process and how he -seemingly effortless- adapted all those different musical styles to make it fully his own, creating great album after great album after great album.

Hot Hibernian Metropolitans
Charlie Jermyn and Civic are keen urban perambulators, long-legged and curious, they see beauty in asphalt and cement and are drawn to strong scents pouring from exhaust pipes. Both always keep their heads up, eyes skyways, walking, lost in a conversation with others or themselves. So, in order to celebrate the week of Bloomsday, and honouring James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’, the great urban meandering odyssey of Leopold Bloom, they will bring you on a stroll, hand in hand, through songs and ballads perfect for soundtracking a wander around a mighty metropolis.
