I thought it was great, he brought a fresh charge of irreverant energy to a proceeding that is always a bit too starchy and predictable. And I didn't even understand most of his lyrics. You could see from the cuts to Herbie that this was where he really broke out of his stoic facade and began enjoying himself. So what if it wasn't jazz.

 

Not to say the rest of the Herbie tribute wasn't phenomenal. It was. But a bunch of great jazz players blowing passionately is exactly what you'd expect. Snoop was the pleasantly unexpected.

 

Almost as good was Sheila E. letting her hair down for her solo and then knocking the symbol stand over.

 

I didn't get the relevance of Buddy Guy, but whatever, it was still enjoyable.

 

We were exhausted and so went to bed before Billy Joel, but we have it recorded.

And what's with Rufus Wainwright singing "New York State of Mind?". Great voice, but the wrong voice for the song.

 

But what was great was when Garth Brooks sang "Goodnight Saigon". That was unexpected.., and quite moving...

Another spit-take from SVEN!

 

Yup, old, all right.

 

Come to think of it, if any of you remember the spit-take, you're at least halfway there.

The only thing Garth Brooks moves is my bowels.

Are you sayin it wasn't the shiznit? And its Snoop Lion since were correcting everything these days.

 

If the 'Snoop' name wasn't already taken, I would've chosen the stage name " Snoop Weasel ". :D

He's moved on, thankfully. Snoopzilla is the name, and he's back on that G-Funk game. Check out 7 Days of Funk.

 

Also, he does claim to smoke enough weed to break any marijuana OD myths: 81 blunts a day.

 

I want to see this video now!

Whether or not you liked Snoop, he didn't butcher "Cantaloupe Island". It was pre-butchered. He was doing the rap on the US3 version of the tune, found here at 0:47 (sorry for the commercial pre-roll):

I was just happy to see Corea, Shorter, Blanchard, DeJohnette, Holland, Parks, Redman, Rosenwinkel, Loueke, Miller, and Colaiuta on TV.

 

The Santana tribute was good. The Billy Joel tribute was terrible, save for the veterans chorus which is always moving.

And for involuntary, ongoing, massive regurgitation events, all that show needed was Michael Bolton pimping Hondas...

It could become my New Year's Resolution diet strategy for 2014!

 

I've got it coming out both ends! :sick:

Thanks for posting the Herbie tribute. This was the first time in my life I thought rap meant ANYTHING) I thought Snoop was fantastic! Great subtle rhythms/body energy,it was a tribute essentially from the stupid world to real genius for once. Surprising too

I don't get the fuss either direction. So Snoop half-freestyles, half quotes the original "Cantaloop" by US3, and people are either up in arms about it or celebrating.

If you thought he was butchering, then the original was butchering. If you thought he was great, the original was certainly better, since they didn't resort to the "Everybody say HO!" crap.
