Herbie Hancock

When Miles Davis arrived in Europe (and in Juan!) in 1963 he had, in his new quintet, standing shoulder to shoulder with Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams, a twenty-three-year-old pianist, Herbie Hancock, whose obvious talent accompanied a project as promising as it was well-reasoned regarding the future of jazz: "It’s not about starting a competition with classical music, but building an art form which is every bit as good." There are indeed few artists who have explored such a vast range of musical genres as has this living jazz legend, incorporating free style in his jazz-rock, sparkles in his funk, electronic in his swing.

Just as Gershwin left his mark on the music of Broadway, Hollywood and American opera, Hancock opened new horizons in jazz by influencing mainstream music tendencies and pop-funk fusion. Be it by way of his "acoustic" duet with Chick Corea (1978), the electric and electronic "hit" ("Rock it" - 1983), tributes to Miles Davis or film scores ("Blow-Up" by Antonioni, "Round midnight" by Bertrand Tavernier), he has never ceased handing out in all directions and in all forms, with great happiness, the fruits of his musical precocity and generosity, combining delicate fingering and phenomenal rhythmic play with apparent ease. The creation of an "International Jazz Day" in 2012 demonstrates his sincere commitment to universally sharing human culture and values.
