Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock on Hubert Laws' sound
NOW, A JAZZ MOMENT...
MUSIC: All Soul
Chick Corea: Somehow that sound that he makes immediately captures the listener. It captures me, warms my heart, makes you smile...
Herbie Hancock: It really is something that he owns. As soon as you hear the flute that Hubert Laws is playing you know that that's Hubert Laws.
... PIANISTS CHICK COREA AND HERBIE HANCOCK ON NEA JAZZ MASTER HUBERT LAWS...
Chick Corea: He transforms that sound into what we call a voice. It's a voice that goes beyond an instrument.
Herbie Hancock: You know, what comes out of him is not the flute. What you hear is Hubert. When a musician gets to that point, where you hear an instrument, but the first thing you think of is not the instrument, you think of the person that's playing it. Hubert Laws is like that.
MUSIC: up for punctuation, then fades under
