Thanks to one of our best friends (and official JaGoFF photographer) Mr. Phat Tony, we got seriously schooled in the funk for the second day in a row - this time by Chi-town legend Herbie Hancock at the Chicago Symphony Center last night.

Check out this classic clip from 1974 if you want to get funked like never before.

(...oh, and don't forget clean underwear!)

Thank God!

Now we feel safe!
