Speaking of Herbie Hancock live, VSOP - Live Under the Sky is a good recent purchase, just reissued as a two disc set. Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard and Charlie and Ron Carte.

A sort of punchy free jazz-ish bebop, with an unusual but very compelling sound that I think comes from the fact that it's a 16-bit PCM recording from 1979.

The music was recorded in a smalll stadium, with heavy rain throughout much of the set, which really boosts the atmosphere and electricty (not literally - zzzt!).
