Herbie Hancock with Christian McBride: Watermelon Man

There’s just no way to describe just how epic Christian McBride is on bass.

This video does him justice though.

Herbie Hancock was featured on Elvis Costello’s “Spectacle” TV show back in February 2009. As part of the show, Herbie took the stage with McBride and drummer Karriem Riggins and performed “Watermelon Man”.

Things get seriously groovy around the 48 second mark. I’m going to go watch it again.
