This past Thursday June 9th, I had the pleasure of seeing Herbie Hancock's Headhunters '05 featuring probably the most talented musicians on the planet! On stage were: Herbie Hancock (of course) - Keys Marcus Miller - Bass Kenny Garrett - Sax Roy Hargrove - Trumpet John Mayer and Lionel Loueke - guitar Terri Lyne Carrington - drums Munyungo Jackson - percussion Now I've read a few things about some people being hesitant about seeing Marcus with Herbie Hancock. Well, all I'm going to say is that if you have a chance to get tickets for this tour - do it. If you don't, you are an idiot. This was, no lie, the best concert I think I've ever seen. Great music, great musicians, great sound - you name it. They played for about 2 1/2 hours. They did a few tunes from Herbie's new CD coming out later this year. Marcus did Frankenstein from his new CD. The rest was various Headhunter's tunes from way back. THIS WAS A GREAT SHOW! You must see it! I was surprised to see one thing though... Marcus was playing a Sting signature bass. He played it as much as he played his regular Jazz bass. I never pictured a Sting bass being played like this - now I have GAS for one... He played the Sting bass for at least half of the songs, if not more. The best part of the whole show was seeing Marcus just be a bassplayer. He took exactly one solo all night. I really enjoyed seeing him just play bass. Marcus' bass work was the some of the best I've ever seen. We've all heard him solo and do this and do that. However, listening to him just play bass was worth the ticket price. Everyone on the stage was great. I was shocked by John Mayer. I've never heard him before, but I've heard others make fun of him for some reason. Well, all I can say is: The boy can throw down like the rest of them. I don't know what he does on other stuff, but he was playing his a*s off all night. If you can get tickets, get them. You won't be let down. I guarantee it.
