Now in the sixth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: at the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. In addition to being recognized as a legendary pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock has been an integral part of every popular music movement since the 1960’s. 
As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet that pioneered a groundbreaking sound in jazz, he also developed new approaches on his own recordings, followed by his work in the 70s – with record-breaking albums such as “Headhunters” – that combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. “Rockit” and “Future Shock” marked Hancock’s foray into electronic dance sounds; during the same period he also continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams.
[BLOGGER'S NOTE: While Executive Chef for Special Events at The Loeb Boathouse inside Central Park/New York City, it was a pleasure for me and the entire staff to cater Miles Davis' 67th Birthday Celebration - it was his last birthday blow-out on Earth - Members of his band, like Herbie Hancock and other others carry on to evolve musically ]
 In honor of his work, Hancock was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in February 2016. Hancock is currently in the studio at work on a new album.
 Hancock will be joined at this performance by Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), James Genus (bass), Lionel Loueke (guitar) and Terrace Martin (keyboardist / saxophonist).
