Happy Birthday Herbie Hancock

For nearly six decades, Herbie Hancock has turned out some of jazz and funk's greatest tunes. The birthday boy turns 81 today. Here's to hoping he has another Watermelon Man or Maiden Voyage in his bag of tricks.

Catch of the day

"After losing my dad in 1984, I kept his military chest which had so many negatives in it. I recently brought them to life through FilmBox. This is my dad taken in the Florida Keys in 1956 He was the first veterinarian in Marathon. He enjoyed fishing - I miss him dearly."
