Herbie Hancock & Watermelon Man & 1962 & 1973

Same artist, same song, different decades.

From first solo album Takin’ Off (1962).


From the milestone funk-fusion album Head Hunters (1973).

It’s a work of genius how Herbie Hancock reconceptualized his own classic standard. I believe the instruments at the beginning are beer bottles.
