Sophistication of electronics and everything

For any fans of Herbie Hancock or old-school electronic music, this is incredibly cool. Herbie Hancock showing Quincy Jones his new toy, a Fairlight CMI controller. My favorite part is 56 seconds in, when Jones casually takes a sip of wine from his glass. You know, just hanging out and drinking while they film this documentary. Also of note, 5 minutes in, the interviewer says, "Seeing you and Quincy here with all these instruments and this sophistication of electronics and everything, but still the, um, African blood, it, uh, really..." Not sure what that's all about. Anyway, enjoy.
