looking for transcriprion/analysis of opening of Herbie Hancock Flood

Might not be the right forum, but a quick google search didn't show any other likely ones, so ...

I'd like to get a transcription or analysis of the harmonies in the first 20-30 seconds of Herbie Hancock's Flood. It seems like he's doing quartal patterns, at least in the LH but I'm not sure about the right. I'm particularly interested in what he's playing first couple times his RH comes in.

Interestingly at about 2:40 after he starts playing he pays homage to a couple classical riffs. The first (2:40-2:47) is on the tip of my tongue but I can't remember it. The second is definitely Debussy (2:47 - 2:55).

If nobody here knows, maybe someone knows of a jazz discussion forum where I could post the question.
