Youtube Synthesizer Medley 1985

Recommended Posts

Oh my.

 

Herbie Hancock is definitely one of the (if not the one) greatest key players, but still he is also definitely an engineer. Nothing against engineers, but I think that his image would have been a lot better without his shirts and cheesy moves :D

Hmm... what was so great about this?

 

Rick Wakeman owns all of these rookies... (except the legendry stevie wonder of course... he's a dude... and he by the way, plays on the MOTIF 8..).

I thought it was fun ...

 

my dream is to do something of a similar concept ...an electronic band with a huge sound ... lots of theatrics ...

 

... however, owing to the one-shot nature of the event and the superstar status of the performers (and they don't really seem to be working very hard or they must have rehearsed a lot), I doubt much of the music was performed live, which really nulls the point ...

 

Yeah, the arrangements are a little on the wrong side of 1985 (meaning less Gary Numan and more, say ... oh I can't think of anyone right now) ... but I still like it ...

 

BTW, wasn't this posted recently? ... tried to find the thread but couldn't ...

The word "zeitgeist" familiar?

What?

 

Herbie Hancock a rookie?

and he by the way, plays on the MOTIF 8..).

You haven't been paying attention with that "What The Fuss" video. That was clearly a Synclavier II.

After seeing this video floated around for a few months I woonder how much of the medley was live performance, and how much was pre-recorded and sequenced.

Ha, same reaction as me.

 

 

Herbie is easily one of the top jazzers, dead or alive. When you're an indisposable part of such a legendary quintet of that local nobody known as Miles Davis, and have in your "played-with" list a group of names including Wayne Shorter, Michael Brecker, Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Ron Carter, Elvin Jones, Chick Corea, Freddie Hubbard, etc. then you're certainly no rookie.

 

 

That's just his straight ahead jazz work too. Ever heard of a tune called Rockit? I think he probably made enough royalties off of that song alone where he could have retired upon release of the song, and put his great grandchildren through college.

 

 

 

Oh yeah, Hohner Clavinet? We all dig that funky instrument right? Who pretty much defined its use when it was originally released?

 

 

 

 

No rookie, that's for sure. :wave:

yeah. I remeber seeing that video a few months ago, exactly the same time that i was really reaserching the synclavier, and what makes it go. It's got some unique approaches to digital audio...

 

But it was a tad freaky, seeing it there on a modern song...

i also have heard that prince plays guitar on that track, which wouldn't surprise me, as the guitar phrasing sounds like something that he'd do...

+100 on all counts, but... you can't argue with a Wakemanista.
