TYPE IN JOHN FRIES TO SEE ALL I HAVE TO OFFER! Growing up in the '40s and '50s in Chicago, Herbie Hancock was around street vendors, including the "watermelon men," who peddled the fruit. This provided the title and musical inspiration for the song. Hancock wrote: "In reflecting on my childhood, I recalled the cry of the watermelon man making his rounds through the back streets and alleys of Chicago's South Side. The wheels of his wagon beat out the rhythm on the cobblestones. "This is one of the most famous jazz compositions ever recorded. Hancock was just 22 when he released it on his first album, Takin' Off.
