Born in 1940 in Chicago, Illinois, piano great Herbie Hancock worked with Donald Byrd and Miles Davis while developing his own jazz recording career, beginning with his debut album, "Takin' Off". Hancock explored a number of genres, as seen on albums like "Mwandishi" and "Head Hunters", and had a 1980s hit with the mix-fest "Rockit". A film composer as well, he has won an Academy Award and many Grammy® Awards.

"The Imagine Project" (2010) saw the composer working with an international cast that included Céu, Pink, Seal and Juanes. By 2013, Herbie Hancock has won 14 Grammy Awards, including for "Album of the Year" in 2008, for his tribute to friend Joni Mitchell, "River: The Joni Letters" - marking the first time in more than four decades that the award went to a jazz musician. The album featured artists like Tina Turner, Norah Jones and Leonard Cohen.
