UPDATE: The DVD is done and is available to download at dimeadozen.

While Van Halen might not be the typical band you’d find here at Funk It, this video project just came out too great not to share it!

Herbie Hancock & The Headhunters 10/20/76 Don Kirshner’s New Rock Concert UNCIRCULATED VIDEOS

UPDATE 10/11/13: It appears the the video has been removed from youtube, but I have re-uploaded the .MP4 video download.

Another uncirculated video of Herbie Hancock & The Headhunters? Last year, we brought you the uncirculated Musikladen 1974 footage. This year, we bring you footage from 1976 on the Don Kirshner’s New Rock Concert TV show.

This lineup of the Headhunters includes original members Bennie Maupin (playing a Lyricon) and the black octopus himself, Paul Jackson, on bass. We also have Wah Wah Watson on guitar and James Levi on drums. And of course Mr. Herbie Hancock on an array of state of the art keyboards. We also get a rare chance to see/hear Herbie singing without a vocodor!

The DVD download is here (it includes the full TV episode, including some bad ’70’s pop rock group called England Dan & John Ford Coley).
The download of the edited .MP4 file is here (1.82gb).
What you see on youtube above is the complete footage.

Now cross your fingers that some video footage exists of the brief 1977 Headhunters lineup with Jaco Pastorius on bass.

John Medeski, Adam Deitch & Skerik 1.5.12 @ Le Poisson Rouge, New York City – VIDEOS with AUDIO UPGRADE

Shortly before boarding Jam Cruise 10, Adam Deitch and Skerik joined John Medeski for an improvisational freak out at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge. It was a pre-show for NYC’s 2012 Winter Jazz Fest and also featured Jessica Lurie‘s new ensemble (featuring Will Bernard) , Marc Ribot‘s Young Philadelphians, and up and comers, Red Baraat (who have a crazy sound of New Orleans brass band funk mixed with Indian bhangra) .

Some of you may have noticed that our friend jamjoints posted 40+ minutes of video of the Medeski, Deitch, Skerik set on youtube last week. He was gracious enough to supply me with the raw video files so I could upgrade the audio (kindly recorded on stage by Mr. Eric McRoberts). So here it is. 40+ minutes of improv including a cover of John Coltrane‘s A Love Supreme.

BTW, the audio download for the Medeski, Deitch, Skerik set is here.
