I'm sure a good few of you know the song Watermelon Man By Herbie Hancock off Head Hunters but I'm wondering who performs the different non-acid jazz version.

In the jazz band in my school we play it but we don't play it the way off head hunters we just play a sort of "normal jazz" way, if that makes sense..

So i was wondering if anyone knows if it was on an album or who performed it etc.

Its also by Herbie Hancock, just earlier in his career, he did some straight ahead stuff before he got all funky. I think its on the album Takin off, but its a pretty common tune and one of his more popular songs.
