  1. Yes, the Herbie Hancock album is great. I am disappointed that Feist didn’t win anything, but the Grammys getting ANYTHING right is rare enough, so I shan’t grumble.

  2. Did you watch the show? The version of “Rhapsody in Blue” Herbie Hancock participated in was just amazing. Hopefully it will show up on YouTube soon.

  3. I was glad to see Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace win Best Rock Album for the Foo Fighters. Great album, probably their best yet.

  4. Excellent choice. Herbie’s Possibilities album is one of my standard “long car driving” albums, and his recent solo album The Piano is great on a rainy day (or any day).

    The venerable Mr. Hancock has a long and multi-genre career (check out Canteaoupe Island)…Kanye (Kanine?) has a long way to go.

  5. Haven’t heard the new album but had the awesome experience of catching Hancock live last year when he was touring it. A great show, a great musician, worth seeing in the flesh if he’s in your neighborhood.

    He’s also one of the only two people I can think of in the whole world who can make a keytar cool, and the only one of the two who does it without being ironic. (The other guy is Ben Folds… who, you know, minored in self-conscious irony during his college years.)

  6. Herbie is the man (go listen to Headhunters, right now!) but it was hilarious when he came up to accept and was just dumbfounded that he had won.

  7. Homie Bear: he was. That’s just how cool Herbie Hancock is: he left Miles Davis’ band to save the universe from Galacticus. But you have it slightly backwards: the Fantastic Four joined him (google “Herbie Hancock’s Cosmic Ray-Irradiated Super Quintet” for more info).
