About The Event

Herbie Hancock has defied tradition over the years creating music that expands the possibilities of musical thought. Embracing elements of rock, soul, funk and electronica, Hancock is often described by many as a visionary, an architect in the post-bop sound. With a career spanning more than 50 years, his passion for innovation and creativity remains unparalleled.

Now in the sixth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: at the forefront of culture, technology, business and music. A legendary pianist and composer, Hancock received an Academy Award for his Round Midnight score and 14 Grammy Awards, including Album of The Year. He currently serves as Creative Chair for Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and as Institute Chairman of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.
