O Wort, du Wort, das mir Fehlt!
I thought to start with that it was just a pianist engaging in some personal improvised meandering on the theme of the slow movement (Thibaudet or Hamelin or Hough occasionally try that sort of thing) - vaguely interesting but inconsequential. But then when the orchestra came in, it turned into a major, premeditated, misguided attempt to 'improve' on Ravel and I turned off

I did quite enjoy reading amazon client Dihelson Mendonca's review:
This CD is a Masterpiece! You can also get, the DVD. It's shocking Herbie's interpretation of "Concerto For Piano And Orchestra In G, 2nd Movement", it's so funny, that even underwater we could recognize it's Herbie Hancock playing. I'm thinking about those people who wrote a bad review of Chick Corea playing Mozart what they would write here about it.
