Another Herbie Hancock concert

Herbie Hancock was in town to open this year's Chicago Jazz Festival with a concert at the CSO last Thursday. This time he came with a mostly-electric setup featuring Nathan East on bass, Vinnie Colaiuta on drums and Lionel Loueke on guitar. I found it at times a little heavy on the synthesizers, but it was evident that Hancock and the band enjoyed themselves during the two hour set. A nice concert, all in all, and again very different from his last two concerts.
