About Herbie Hancock

Herbie Hancock is a true icon of modern music. Throughout his explorations, he has transcended limitations and genres while maintaining his unmistakable voice. With an illustrious career spanning five decades and 14 Grammy® Awards, including Album of the Year for River: The Joni Letters, he continues to amaze audiences across the globe.

There are few artists in the music industry who have had more influence on acoustic and electronic jazz and R&B than Herbie Hancock. As the immortal Miles Davis said in his autobiography, “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.”

Now in the fifth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: in the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. Though one can’t track exactly where he will go next, he is sure to leave his inimitable imprint wherever he lands.

About Wayne Shorter

One of the most influential saxophonists and composers in the pantheon of modern music, let alone jazz, Wayne Shorter is currently celebrating his 81st terrestrial year. Regarded as a pioneer since his emergence in the 1950’s, his trajectory has restlessly embodied continual exploration and unencumbered momentum. A generation of musicians and fans see and hear him as a humble master who created a timeless vocabulary – as vital as it is unbound. Shorter won in three categories of the 2014 JJA Jazz Awards, taking honors for Musician of the Year, Record of the Year for his quartet’s searing Blue Note release, Without A Net, and the Wayne Shorter Quartet was named top Midsize Ensemble of the Year.
