Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, Roy Hargrove


On October 25th, 2001, Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, and Roy Hargrove walked onto the stage of Toronto's historic Massey Hall. These three stellar musicians, representing nearly three generations of jazz history, were there to pay tribute to Miles Davis and John Coltrane-who both would have turned 75 years old last year. The vision, virtuosity, chemistry, and respect with which they performed that night were captured on tape by Canadian Broadcasting. Directions in Music: Live at Massey Hall is now proudly released by Verve Records. Read more on Last.fm
On October 25th, 2001, Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, and Roy Hargrove walked onto the stage of Toronto's historic Massey Hall. These three stellar musicians, representing nearly three generations of jazz history, were there to pay tribute to Miles Davis and John Coltrane-who both would have turned 75 years old last year. The vision, virtuosity, chemistry, and respect with which they performed that night were captured on tape by Canadian Broadcasting. Directions in Music: Live at Massey Hall is now proudly released by Verve Records. The purpose of this concert-a date on a tour which was the biggest jazz event of the year playing to more than 200,000 concertgoers-was not to keep Davis and Coltrane on a pedestal as Hancock, Brecker, and Hargrove recapitulated familiar melodies, harmonics, and arrangements.

What won critical acclaim and gives their Live at Massey Hall recording such emotional vibrancy is that the musicians trusted their talents to re-imagine some of the best-known works of these late legends in the spirit of adventure and exploration that characterized their art. The Directions in Music tour featured Hancock on piano, Brecker on saxophone, Hargrove on trumpet, and the rhythm section of Brian Blade (drums) and John Patitucci (bass). "John and Brian added so much to the mix-a very high level of creativity and imagination combined with complete virtuosity," Brecker said. "And then there is their incredible enthusiasm. They made every night an adventure." Read more on Last.fm.
