Herbie Hancock & Quincy Jones, Fairlight CMI

Quincy Jones hanging out with Herbie Hancock as he’s jamming with the Fairlight II. The Fairlight was an 8-Bit sampler with twin 8″ floppy drives. No mouse, just a light pen to use with the green screen. Vintage gear watchers will spot the Fender Rhodes, JBL monitors and what looks like a Commodore computer, probably for an editing program. Circa 1985
