Fair use rationale for Image:Herbie hancock River the joni letters front cover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Herbie hancock River the joni letters front cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Last jazz album to win Grammy for Best Album of the Year[edit]

Wouldn't that be 1991's Back on the Block and not Getz/Gilberto? Did Hancock specifically mention Getz/Gilberto in his acceptance speech? Hakob (talk) 08:45, 15 February 2008 (UTC) Wouldn't that be 1995's MTV Unplugged: Tony Bennett? Methinks Mr Hancock is confused. Gareth E Kegg (talk) 11:25, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Hancock said, ""It's been 43 years since the first and only time that a jazz artist got an album of the year award." Multiple news sources filled in the blanks, "referring to 1964's "Getz/Gilberto."[1][2] (which won the award in 1965). Various music critics agreed. According to The New York Times, Back on the Block is a compilation album of fusion music, "from jazz to soul to funk to rap".[3] Quincy Jones produced the album. I'm not clear who received the award, but it was not given to a jazz artist for a particular jazz album in that case. MTV Unplugged: Tony Bennett is classified by the Grammys as "Pop Album" and "Pop Vocal Performance". —Viriditas | Talk 06:18, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Corrections Needed[edit]

The ref. link to "Hancock Steals Grammy Album of Year" is broken (links to "no page found"). Tonymci2 (talk) 18:10, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Fabian[edit]

Last edit states Lara Fabian featuring on this album??? Anyone can confirm this?--Dongiello (talk) 08:41, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

It's an IP edit from a university. I'll check the liner notes right now... Viriditas (talk) 09:32, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Nothing listed in the liner notes.[4] It therefore appears to be vandalism. I've removed it. Viriditas (talk) 09:50, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Viriditas, thanks! That would've been... TOO... cool. Thanks for the cookies still warm though :p --Dongiello (talk) 09:55, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
