Track of the Week: Watermelon Man by Herbie Hancock AND Davy Graham

One of my first Track of the Weeks was a Charles Mingus cover by the british folk/jazz musician Davy Graham. You can (and should) check that out right here. I've been listening to more Davy Graham these days, and got a hold of this great cover of Herbie Handcock's Watermelon Man.

First off, have a listen the Hancock version off "Headhunters":





Now, here's the acoustic cover by Davy Graham:





So good. Happy Wednesday!!
