Herbie Hancock

1940 -

Origin: United States

This American pianist is one of the most versatile musicians in the history of jazz. He doesn't hesitate to meld into his compositions elements of soul, rock and hip-hop, and make the whole harmonious. A precocious talent, he first made a name for himself playing with the most celebrated jazzmen, in particular with the Miles Davis Quintet. He then embarked on a prolific solo career. Also a gifted composer, he has written classics such as Watermelon Man, Maiden Voyage and Chameleon.
