Herbie Hancock – My Ship

I like Herbie’s chromatic movements around 4:10. He starts off his solo with simple ideas. He moves pentatonic arpeggiations around chromatically, which is something I’m trying to get more fluent at. His comping was pretty quiet during most of the solos, which is different from Oscar Peterson. Roy Hargrove has a great ear for melody – he seems to emulate a lot of Miles Davis in that he focuses on melodic impact over dexterity.
