Magic Number  

I went and saw the Richard Avedon exhibit last weekend at the SF MOMA. There's something in the way he photographs people that is so raw. His ability to capture such depth of emotion in the eyes is really beautiful and moving. There's a series he did based on rural life in the American West that was so stunning, I can't stop thinking about it.
On a completely different note, here's a track I really love. Herbie Hancock and Sylvester are an amazing team. Obviously a true testament to Sylvester's brilliant talent and vocal range as this song is sung low and deep.

    the Richard Avedon exhibition is great. This tune is great too, I have heard it a few times over the years and never knew what it was.

    Wow. I knew Sylvester was involved in this tune but always assumed it was someone else on lead and Sylvester on the falsetto backups! Magic... magic... magic... magic...
