Back in 2010, Herbie Hancock stopped by the Swamp Raga Studios for a house-warming visit to Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. The three came together for Hancock’s 2010 album, The Imagine Project, for the track “Space Captain” with additional members of TTB, including Oteil Burbridge (bass, vocals), Kofi Burbridge (keys), Mike Mattison (vocals), and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums).The married duo then toured with Hancock to perform this number for his 70th birthday concerts at Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. The song is now featured in their setlists from time to time.Watch, and feel, the magic from the recording session below:

Definitely the outdoors, it’s where our kids spend a lot of their time. We’re on a 825sq m corner block in a double cul-de-sac. Ashgrove is a leafy suburb full of families, which we love. My studio is my favourite hang out space. It’s where I spend a lot of time but it makes me happy. I have everything I need in this space from my painting easel and trolley to a large layout bench, a sewing table and of course my computer workspace. Storage is in abundance in this room so everything is on hand behind the sliding doors. What do you love about your home? If money was no option, what would be your fantasy home and where? What is the best thing about your suburb? We live in Ashgrove. We moved here from Auchenflower once our eldest son commenced Year 5 at Marist College Ashgrove. It just made sense to live close to the school that we were going to be involved with for the next 12 years until our youngest son graduates. Building a contemporary art gallery (GOMA-style) space with very high ceilings using a combination of juxtaposing materials (concrete, timber, aluminium etc) and be full of mid-20th century classic furniture and abstract art. As for the location, somewhere with direct access to our private beach and docked yacht/luxury cruiser in summer and in wintertime it would the mountains with ski-in/ski-out facilities. Ashgrove is leafy and full of families. We love that. Where do you live and why? We are yet to renovate our interior so that is the next thing on our agenda when time permits. We can’t wait to knock out a few walls and open up the living areas which will create a feeling of space. We can then bring back my favourite classic chair collection, which is currently in storage. Our best advice was to get into the property market as soon as we could. We bought our first piece of property when we were first married (23). Most of our single friends were off overseas blowing their cash but we did it the other way around.
