History The Doctor Is… Far Out

Dr. Patrick Gleeson and Herbie Hancock, diabolically scheming to blow your mind.
Dr. Patrick Gleeson established himself in the ’70s as the go-to guy among forward-thinking jazz musicians (Herbie Hancock, Charles Earland, Julian Priester, Lenny White, Bennie Maupin, et al.) seeking far-out, eloquent analog-synth emissions. The good doctor recently put up a live (1972) version of “Hornet” (originally found on the classic Sextant LP) on his MySpace. Go to his virtual iPod there and click on that sucker. Warning: it’s NSFW (not safe for wusses). Also worth checking are Gleeson’s recent remixes of Miles Davis’ “Shh Peaceful” and “The Maids of Cadiz.”
