Hey, Watermelon Man!


Notes

"Watermelon Man" is a jazz standard written by Herbie Hancock, first released on his debut album, Takin' Off (1962). It was the first piece of music Herbie had ever composed with a commercial goal in mind. It has been recorded by many artists over the last five decades! Enjoy these cool versions!

Love this playlist! so many great versions, some are really unique :) great idea for a playlist. Thank you for sharing!

I was diggin' the Johnny Winter mix. His passing is a great loss to the music world. I got to see him at least twice (I think- a little cloudy sometimes!), in small venues with just bass and drums. What a showman! Thanks

@jumbo-tron Thanks, jumbo-tron! Yes, Johnny's loss left a huge void in music. As he was one of my musical heroes while I was coming up, it was a great honor and pleasure meeting him and getting to hang out and listen to his stories. I was working in his brother Edgar's Band and he came by to a studio session we were doing. He even sang some backup vocals with us on one tune. That was an unforgettable experience as you can imagine.
