Herbie Hancock speaks on stage at the 2014 International Jazz Day Global Concert on April 30, 2014 in Osaka, Japan.

 

Herbie Hancock is a legend in the Jazz world but also music overall. Herbie became known for his talent as a pianist working with Miles Davis but to those in the hip hop community, he became famous for his song ‘Rock It’. His ability to connect different generations with  jazz  is remarkable but he’s Herbie Hancock, that’s what he’s about. Herbie sat down and talked with NPR’s Diane Rehms on her show about his memoir ‘Possibilities’ which gives readers an in depth look at the man behind the piano.  Listen to the almost hour long interview HERE
