Herbie Hancock

Style: bebop, funk, jazz, jazz fusion, R&B

    Herbie Hancock, jazz pianist (piano, synthesizer, organ, clavinet, keytar, vocoder), born 12 April 1940 in Chicago, Illinois, United States.

    “Herbie Hancock is one of the few jazz pianists who progressed with the times. From fusion funk through to electronic music using synthesizers and toys, he’s always been way ahead. It was Head Hunters, the record that fused funk and soul with pop, that I fell in love with. I grew up in the west country with little exposure to jazz and although I wasn’t rejecting pop, I knew there was more to music. Through Herbie, electro and drum’n’bass, I developed an understanding of improvisation. I aim to operate somewhere between Herbie and Ben Folds at all times.”—The 10 best jazz musicians by Jamie Cullum
