Did Herbie write this other tune? If not, why is it considered a sequel?  
If he did write it that is more useful information. That would mean that  
the listener is looking for a Herbie Hancock tune recorded by Stanley in  
the early 60s.

Or does sequel mean it was based on or influenced by Watermelon Man?

Was this a test from the listener? He knows the answer and he just wants  
you to guess?

Herbie was on Stanley's recording called Joyride, recorded for Blue Note  
in April 1965. Could that be the recording he's looking for?
