A Master in our Midst

Yes! Another cool benefit of living near a top international school... Herbie Hancock visited ASIJ this week, offering a Master Class to the Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz groups. (He was in Tokyo on a concert tour.) He graciously opened the auditorium so the rest of us could watch him teach and hear him perform. Have you heard this man play? Wow. I mean it. Wow.

Now check out his website (link above.) Don't you think he kinda looks like a cross between Morgan Freeman and Denzel Washington?

Again. Wow.
