When Miles Davis arrived in Europe in 1963, he had in his new quintet alongside George Coleman, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams, a twenty-three-year-old pianist, Herbie Hancock, whose undeniable talent was accompanied by a project as promising as it was reasoned about the future of jazz. "It is not a question of entering into competition with classical music, but of building an art form that is every bit as good". In fact, few artists have been able to explore a musical palette as broad as this living jazz legend, putting free in his jazz-rock, glitter in his funk, electronics in his swing.
Just as Gershwin stamped his seal on the music of Broadway, Hollywood, and American opera, Hancock opened new horizons for jazz by influencing the trends of mainstream music and pop-funk fusion. From his "acoustic" duo with Chick Corea (1978) to the electric and electronic "hit" (Rockit -1983), from tributes to Miles Davis to film music (Blow-Up by Antonioni, Around Midnight by Bertrand Tavernier), he has never ceased to distribute in all directions and in all forms, with a rare happiness, the fruits of his precocity and his musical generosity, combining with apparent ease a delicate touch and phenomenal rhythmic play.
