Music Monday: Herby Hancock's Cantaloupe Island

Herbie Hancock wrote Cantaloupe Island back in 1964 (here is the original) and it has stood the test of time. I like this song and have really liked many renditions by many groups (including Us3's version called Cantaloop), but all of the groups I am including here have Herbie in them. Each group has different composition, so you can certainly see some different takes on the song.

Herbie Hancock, Freddy Hubbard, et al:

Herbie Hancock Trio

Herbie Solo and Then With Herbie (it's cool to watch him jamming with himself)
