Herbie Hancock has nothing left to prove to anyone, as befits veteran international music star who has inspired several generations of Jazz, funk, techno and hip-hop artists, sold millions of records, and earned Oscar, Kennedy Center Honor, 14 GRAMMY Awards, six honorary doctorates and Five MTV Video Music Awards. Along the way, this genre-leaping innovator has collaborated with everyone from Miles Davis, Lang Lang, Joni Mitchell and Thundercat to Carlos Santana, Pink, former San Diego sitar Great Anoushka Shankar and various symphony orchestras. Then theres Hancocks did not quite complete new album, which teams him with Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar, young saxophone sensation Kamasi Washington, shape-shifting producer Flying Lotus and Jazz sax giant Wayne Shorter, Hancocks ' longtime pal and former band mate in the fabled Miles Davis Quintet of the 1960s. After accomplishing so much, is there anything Hancock still wants to prove, if only to himself? Well, you actually answer part of the question because you talk about proving something to other people. And, basically, there is one person I have to prove myself to, and that is to me, the legendary keyboardist, band leader and composer. He perform Aug. 20 at Humphreys Concerts by Bay with his four-man, one-woman group, which features drum master Vinnie Colaiuta, West African guitar wizard Lionel Loueke and 23-year-old flute sensation Elena Pinderhughes. At the same time, Hancock continue, speaking by phone Monday From tour stop in Toronto, I have confidence to know that all human beings have infinite potential, although very often they do realize that potential. Ive been practicing Buddhism for more than 46 years and that is part of what I learn through my practice of Buddhism. Every human being has that potential, and to explore that potential is an exciting thing to do. That does take courage, but courage is build into Jazz! Because in Jazz, were improvising. And that means being in the moment, creating something that, hopefully, we have created before borrowing, sometimes, from the past, but not staying in the past. Its very challenging to do that. And, at the same time, it is extremely rewarding how that makes you feel as a musician. Were presenting that rawness, that newness, that courage and compassion to people, because we want them to feel that, too. Because that put us all on the road to being better human beings. In addition to his current summer concert tour and completing his long-await new album, Hancock keeps busy in an array of other ways.

Orchestral debut at 11

HERBIE HANCOCK is a true icon of modern music. His creative path has moved fluidly between almost every development in acoustic and electronic Jazz and R & B since 1960. He has attained an enviable balance of commercial and artistic success, arriving at a point in his career where he ventures into every new project motivated purely by desire to expand the boundaries of his creativity. HANCOCK won the 1987 Academy Award for his soundtrack to the film 'Round Midnight. He has won eight Grammy Awards in the past two decades, including three for his 1998 classic Gershwin's World. Few artists in the entire music industry have gained more respect and cast more influence than HERBIE HANCOCK. As immortal MILES DAVIS says in his autobiography, HERBIE was step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven't heard of anybody yet who has come after him. Born in Chicago in 1940, HANCOCK was a child piano prodigy who performed Mozart Piano Concerto With Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the tender age of 11. He began playing Jazz in high school, initially influenced by Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans. Also, at this time, additional passion for electronic science began to develop. As a result, he took a double Major in Music and electrical engineering at Grinnell College. In 1960, at age 20, HANCOCK was discovered by trumpeter Donald Byrd, who asked him to join his group. Byrd also introduced HANCOCK to Alfred Lion Of Blue Note Records; after two years of session work With likes of Phil Woods and Oliver Nelson, He signed To Legendary Label as a Solo Artist. His 1963 debut album, Takin' Off, was an immediate success, producing Watermelon Man, instant hit on Jazz and R & B radio. Also in 1963, HANCOCK received a call that was to change his life and fix his place in Jazz history. He was invited to join MILES DAVIS Quintet. During his five years with DAVIS, HANCOCK and his colleagues thrilled audiences and recorded classic after classic, including albums like ESP, Nefertiti, and Sorcerer. Most Jazz critics and fans regard this group, which also includes Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams, as the greatest small Jazz group of the 1960s. Even after he leaves Miles' Group, HANCOCK appears on Davis' groundbreaking recordings in Silent Way and Bitches Brew, which herald the birth of Jazz-fusion. Simultaneously with his work For MILES, HANCOCK's own solo career blossoms on Blue Note with even more classics like Maiden Voyage, Empyrean Isles, and Speak Like Child. In 1966, he composed the score for Michelangelo Antonioni's film, Blow Up. This led to a successful career in feature films and television Music, including his Oscar-winning 'Round Midnight. After leaving MILES DAVIS in 1968, HANCOCK stepped full-time into the new electronic Jazz-funk that was sweeping the world. In 1973, Headhunters, second LP in his new deal with Columbia Records, became Jazz's first platinum album.


Herbie Hancock

Herbie Hancock is one of the few living musicians who has been able to command respect simultaneously in the high-art field of Jazz and in the commercially-oriented world of popular music. Since coming to prominence with Jazz trumpeter Miles Davis's path-breaking fusion ensemble of the 1960s, Hancock has in effect maintained two separate careers, winning acclaim as acoustic Jazz pianist in pure bebop and post-bop traditions on one hand, while keeping Up With, making creative use of, and sometimes even giving birth to trends in Black popular Music on other. In the words of Down Beat writer Pat Cole, Hancock has been the quintessential border crosser. Adherent of the chant-orient Nichiren Shoshu sect of Buddhism, Hancock might also be said to have led a quintessentially creative life. He was born on April 12 1940 to Wayman and Winnie Hancock, and was recognized as a piano prodigy as a child. His musical career has been shaped and defined by the sheer fascination he feels when new sounds come his way; When string on his piano break during the 1986 New York concert, Hancock adapted by seamlessly weaving the twang of damaged string into the thread of his improvisation. People Magazine once described him with this memorable headline: Cat curious, With as many creative lives, He thrives Round Midnight, last phrase referring both to Hancock's tendency to work through night when excited by project and to his Award-winning Score for the film biography of Jazzman Dexter Gordon, Round Midnight.

Historic Joni Mitchell tribute album

A Decade ago, Herbie Hancock's latest surprised both jazz enthusiasts and mainstream audiences-and now, it's available in a new expanded edition. Verve and UMe will reissue Hancock's River: Joni Letters for its 10 anniversary this Friday, December 15.

While Hancock and Mitchell were no strangers to each other's work-both had collaborated on Mitchell's 1979 Album Mingus-it was the album's eventual critical and commercial reception that seemed to stun even Hancock himself. No greater was this surprise on display than in 2008, when Hancock took the stage at 50 Annual Grammy Awards to accept the trophy for Album of Year. It was only the second time a jazz LP received this honor, and that year's competition was stiff, including Kanye West's Graduation and Amy Winehouse's Back to Black. With that public display, Album shot to No. 5 on Billboard 200. With 10 Years' hindsight, Album effortlessly transcends mere tribute Album status and highlights more than Mitchell's folk roots, offering robust songs from across her diverse discography, performed both instrumentally and with a handful of guest vocalists. Two non-Mitchell compositions that were crucial to her musical development include: Duke Ellington's solitude and Shorter's own Nefertiti, written for Miles Davis.
