first_imgHerbie Hancock has announced a slew of west coast spring dates! Later this month, the jazz pianist will hit the Los Angeles Philharmonic in Los Angeles, CA. Then, Hancock will hit the road in March for five dates, including Seattle’s McCaw Hall, Portland, OR’s Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Oakland’s Fox Theater, Tucson’s Centennial Hall, and San Diego’s Balboa Theater, with additional dates on the way.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. 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.Check out the upcoming tour dates below and head to the great Herbie Hancock’s website for additional information on tour dates and tickets.Herbie Hancock 2018 Tour Dates1/27 – Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles Philharmonic3/1 – Seattle, WA – McCaw Hall3/2 – Portland, OR – Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall3/4 – Oakland, CA – Fox Theater3/6 – Tucson, AZ – Centennial Hall3/7 – San Diego, CA – Balboa Theatrelast_img read more
