Sixty years after his professional debut, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been, at the forefront of culture, technology and music.
A legendary pianist and composer, a worldwide icon of jazz, Hancock has taken part to every significant musical movement since the 60s, starting with Miles Davis’s quintet. His contribution was pivotal in hybridizing electric jazz with funk and rock, and many contemporary sounds, from street music to the one we call “highbrow”, have been influenced by his brilliant creations. After winning an Oscar and 14 Grammys, including a lifetime achievement award, Hancock now presides over the Jazz section of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Thelonious Monk Institute, as well as being a UNESCO goodwill Ambassador and a recipient of the Kennedy Center’s highest Honor.
