Watch Herbie Hancock Meet Up With Trey Anastasio For A Memorable Jam Session In The Barn

first_imgThe Barn was a magical place. Trey Anastasio‘s custom studio in Vermont was used for many a Phish recordings in the late 90s and early 2000s, with the Trey Anastasio Band also taking up residency there to record their early albums. Other artists have also taken advantage of the serene settings that The Barn provides, with Béla Fleck, Toots & the Maytals, Umphrey’s McGee, John Medeski, Patty LaBelle, The Slip, and more all making the trek to the Green Mountains to record some tracks. With that in mind, The Barn has taken on a somewhat mythical vibe, as musicians know that it’s a place where they can get incredible musical results.Back in 2004, jazz icon Herbie Hancock did just that, as he journeyed to The Barn to record a song for his at-the-time forthcoming album. He brought along some true heavy hitters to add to the recording, as veteran jazz bassist John Pattituci, funky drummer Steve Jordan, and world-renowned percussionist (and original TAB member) Cyro Baptista joined Anastasio and trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick for an unforgettable jam session. Hancock and Anastasio are two of the most impressive improvisers on the planet, so this session would be one for the ages.Thankfully, there was a camera crew on hand at The Barn to capture this unique and impressive moment. The video showcases the process that went into the arrangement and recording process, with Anastasio and Hancock having several in-depth conversations about the style they were going for, using Hancock’s eclectic experience in the jazz world as a launching pad for several musical ideas. It’s an awesome video to watch, with so many musical masters creating a beautiful piece of music. Check out the video below, and also check out the final product, “Gelo Na Montanha” from Hancock’s 2005 album Possibilities.Watch Herbie Hancock and Trey Anastasio record “Gelo Na Montanha”, courtesy of YouTube user Joe RiouxListen to “Gelo Na Montnanha” by Herbie Hancock, featuring Trey Anastasio, John Pattituci, Steve Jordan, Cyro Baptista, and Jennifer Hartswick below, courtesy of YouTube user mandobanjoguitar.last_img read more

‘Everybody knows everybody’s getting paid,’ Lonzo Ball says after Kyle Kuzma linked to alleged payments at Utah

first_imgKuzma has been an outspoken critic of the NCAA and amateurism in general. Aftier Louisville was stripped of its 2013 basketball championship earlier this week, Kuzma tweeted, “Someone take down the NCAA for generating billions of dollars to only pay its student athletes cost of attendance of a $900 dollars a month.”What Kuzma did not say on Friday was voiced loud and clear by his rookie teammate Lonzo Ball. LOS ANGELES — Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma said he was “not concerned at all” about being named in an explosive report Friday that detailed the improper benefits college and high school players received from former agent Andy Miller, the founder of ASM Sports.According to a comprehensive investigation by Yahoo, Kuzma was listed as accepting loans totaling $9,500 on a 2015 balance sheet while at Utah, where he played from 2014-17.Kuzma spoke to reporters prior to the Lakers’ game against the Dallas Mavericks, though he mostly declined to comment on the report, calling it a “legal matter.” He declined to say whether the allegations were true, but acknowledged the report had been a distraction.“It is (about) the NBA right now,” Kuzma said. “We are focusing on trying to win games and things like this come about and what not, it is definitely a little distraction, but nothing that professional athletes in general who go through situations like this can’t handle.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers “Everybody knows everybody’s getting paid,” Ball said Friday morning. “That’s just how it is. Everybody’s getting paid anyway, you might as well make it legal. That’s how I feel.”Ball said he did not get paid during the year he spent at UCLA before being drafted No. 2 overall by the Lakers last spring.“My dad’s not big on that,” Ball said. “We kind of just focused on going there and getting out.”Yahoo published a 2015 balance sheet from ASM Sports, run by former NBA agent Andy Miller, that listed loans to players, including $43,500 to Dallas Mavericks rookie Dennis Smith Jr. while he was still in high school.Current USC players Bennie Boatwright and Chimezie Metu were both named in the report. NBA players in the report included No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, Bam Adebayo, Isaiah Whitehead and former Clippers draft pick Diamond Stone.Coach Luke Walton agreed college players should be compensated.“To me, when there’s that much money involved, the players should be getting a bigger piece of that as far as being able to live in a nice place, go to a nice restaurant, instead of just fast-food type of places,” Walton said. “Obviously that’s a long story that you have to find a way to make it work. At some level, yes, I think they should be getting paid.”Ball’s father, LaVar Ball, has taken steps to launch a basketball league for high school graduates who don’t want to go to college, with players earning between $3,000 and $10,000 each month.The goal of the Junior Basketball Association, which is scheduled to launch this summer, is to “get the NCAA to change and pay players,” said Lonzo Ball, whose likeness was the model for the league’s black-and-gold logo.“All the money that you generate, March Madness, you can look at all the numbers,” Ball said. “It doesn’t really add up in my opinion. Hopefully, that makes little things just change.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
