Herbie Hancock: Possibilities
The warmly welcomed memoir by one of the most influential and beloved musicians of our time
In Herbie Hancock: Possibilities, the legendary jazz musician and composer reflects on an extraordinary life and a thriving career that has spanned seven decades. A true innovator who has spent a lifetime exploring a range of musical genres, and enriching each of them, Hancock has had an enormous influence on acoustic and electric jazz, R&B, funk, and hip-hop.
From his beginnings as a child prodigy to his early classic Blue Note recordings; from his work in Miles Davis's second great quintet to his innovations as the leader of his own groundbreaking sextet; from era-defining classic albums likeHead Hunters and River: The Joni Letters to his collaborations with artists like Wayne Shorter and Stevie Wonder, Hancock reveals the methods behind his ever-evolving musical genius. He discusses his influences, his happy marriage, and how his practice of Buddhism has inspired him both creatively and personally. Honest, enlightening, and as electrifyingly vital as its author, this is an invaluable contribution to jazz literature and an intimate, insightful portrait of a creative life.
