Just saw Herbie Hancock this evening. For the first time since 1984 I saw Vinnie on drums (that time with Joni Mitchell). He is still very much on fire, and some of the interplay between Hancock's soloing and Vinnie's playing made me think. :-)

A great show, by the way, focused on Hancock's recent CD The Imagine Project, as well as some of his older more funky stuff (so not much jazz as such this time around). The encores was a long Chameleon jam. The band was outstanding, and in particular I saw the new bass talent, Tal Wilkenfeld. My God. 23 years old, and she plays like a seasoned pro. And she could sing (she sang Dylan's Times Are A Changing almost only accompanied by her own bass playing). What a unique musician.

Check her out, e.g., here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wK03pYCLJho where she plays on an Australian TV-show (with Vinnie hammering along in the background).

Vinnie's done some HH shows around here in the past few years.
I really wanted to go. Just couldn't make it.

I’m pretty sure it was Jeff Beck the “discovered” her. Although, as you said, just 23, she played with Beck for a number of years.
