Read a review for this performance HERE – or go to the Music drop-down under the Performance Reviews Page.
In addition to being recognized as a legendary pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock has been an integral part of every popular music movement since the 1960s. As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet that pioneered a groundbreaking sound in jazz, he also developed new approaches on his own recordings, followed by his work in the ’70s – with record-breaking albums such as Headhunters – that combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. “Rockit” and “Future Shock” marked Hancock’s foray into electronic dance sounds; during the same period he also continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams.
In honor of his work, Hancock was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in February 2016. Never one to rest on his considerable past achievements – including an Oscar® and multiple Grammy® Awards – Herbie Hancock continues to expand his own musical vision. In addition to performing his own material, Herbie will share the stage with jazz’s next generation of trailblazers. It’s a showcase of the future guided by one of jazz’s key architects.
