I was so happy to hook up with my friend and fellow Herbie Hancock fan Tom O'Grady to indulge in over two and half hours of Herbie related music plucked from his personal vinyl collection.

Enjoy over an hour of Disco indulgence with the one and only Valerie Etienne. I first met Val in 1994 when I joined the band Galliano to play keyboards, and we have maintained a close working relationship ever since.
