Herbie in your living rooom

BBC4 is screening Antonioni’s Blow-Up from 1966 this Thursday at 11pm. I’m looking forward to catching at least a bit of it…

Iconic. Soundtrack by the 25-year old Herbie Hancock.

Herbie Hancock: piano; Freddie Hubbard: trumpet; Joe Newman: trumpet; Phil Woods: alto sax; Joe Henderson: tenor sax; Jimmy Smith: organ; Jim Hall:guitar; Ron Carter: bass; Jack DeJohnette: drums
