Day 244: Herbie Hancock makes sounds on the Street

... Sesame Street!

Yeah, I discovered this video whilst looking into the work of Jazz (and some might argue Hip hop) legend Herbie Hancock.

This video is great on many levels. Not least the gentle introduction it gives to sampling/synthesis. I have no idea what this rig is, but I know I want it.

Also weirdly one of the children is Fresh Prince actress Tatyana Ali (who played Ashley).

That all wrapped up in the wonder and magic that is Sesame Street, a time when touch screen monitors must have been pure bleeding edge, many many years before the iPhone. Little did they know though that 30 years later the iPhone would do all of that and more.
