With an illustrious career spanning five decades, pianist and composer Herbie Hancock has been one of the most influential and versatile personalities of modern jazz. From his early days in soul jazz to his time in Miles Davis’ quintet, from excursions into techno-pop in the late seventies to his return to the discerning mainstream of the present: there is no genre that has not felt his influence. Time and again pushing the envelope and taking genres beyond their defined boundaries, he has nevertheless retained true to his own inimitable style. This is why the fourteen-time Grammy winner and music pioneer is considered by many to be one of the most fearless and versatile jazz musicians of all time.
As the immortal Miles Davis said in his autobiography, »Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.«
