    very wrong drum part, the different instrument parts don't blend at all. the keyboard, as always on these tracks terrible not jazzy or funky phrasing. the turnaround comping is ridiculous. it's clipped, staccato and sounds stupid band in a box in deed. crap Enter WATERMELON MAN (in caps) Backing Tack Herbie Hancock. You will get an Abersold track. With real jazz musicians playing on it.
