Herbie Hancock – Watermelon Man [1962]

“Watermelon Man” is a jazz standard written by Herbie Hancock for his debut album, Takin’ Off (1962).
Hancock’s first version was released as a grooving hard bop record, and featured improvisations by Freddie Hubbard and Dexter Gordon. A single reached the Top 100 of the pop chart. Cuban percussionist Mongo SantamarĂ­a released the tune as a Latin pop single and it became a surprise hit, reaching No. 10 on the pop chart. SantamarĂ­a’s recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998. Hancock radically re-worked the tune, combining elements of funk, for the album Head Hunters (1973).
