There’s bad disco (and lots of it). There’s good disco. And then there’s anything Herbie Hancock does. A jazz legend who has pretty much done it all from classical & modern jazz to blues to classical to funk, R&B and the breakdancing anthem, Rockit, Herbie turns his talents to the light up dance floor in this incredible late-disco jam.
This happy little number checks off all the boxes.
A naughty synthesizer? Yep.
Tambo? Sho nuff.
Slap Bass? Got it.
Bongos? You know it.
Jazz legend Herbie Hancock on the keyboard & VOCODER? You bet your love!

Four years and a hundred sweaty dancefloors in the making, it’s The Fatback 4th Anniversary! Upstairs at Liv, defy the laws of gravity and common decency with THE FATBACK FUNK ODYSSEY. Deep cuts in deep space, y’all. Then, ease on down to the ground floor for the FATBACK FAMILY CIRCUS, featuring a second sound system, a third bar, and a menagerie of props and costume pieces to set the mood. Keep your eyes peeled for special guests, surprise performances, and that sudden, overwhelming realization that this must be the place.
