Stellar 1997 Jazz Ensemble Jams Prince Tune

At the 1997 Montreau Jazz Festival, Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, Jack DeJonette, Don Alias, John Scofield, and Michael Brecker (r.i.p.) take on Prince's "Theives in the Temple" and take it to other places as jazz may do.

The clip might have been featured here in the past, but why not dig it out one more time to enjoy this groove? It may be about time!

Makes me wonder what Prince might have said of, and done if participated alongside, this ensemble's efforts.

cool

You are welcome! It sure does swing and the melody has given me an earworm.

Some of the greatest musicians ever in their instruments.

While the ensemble is composed of absolute masters on their instruments, this performance/arrangement did next to nothing for me.

- Yes, unfortunately it didnt make justice to the song. Their version of Sade´s ´Love is stronger than pride´ was a lot better to me.
