Herbie Hancock: 'On A Path To Find My Own Answer'

Via NPR Books

To listen to the music of Herbie Hancock is to witness an artist in constant evolution. Even looking at highlights alone — from 1962's "Watermelon Man," a tune he says he named after a fruit seller he'd seen in his hometown of Chicago, to playing in Miles Davis' band, to his improbable hip-hop hybrid "Rockit" in 1983, to his recent collaboration with fellow electronic tinkerer Flying Lotus — to refer to the pianist and composer as a jazz artist feels utterly inadequate.

Now, at the age of 74, Hancock is looking back on his sweeping career in a memoir called Possibilities. He joined NPR's Steve Inskeep to talk about some of his more profound turning points, be it Buddhist chants as a gateway to funk music or getting into hard drugs and bouncing back. Hear the radio version at the audio link below!

Jazz pianist, composer and bandleader Horace Silver was one of the most popular and influential jazz musicians of the ’50s and ’60s. Widely regarded as the creator of the hard bop sound — a combination of R&B, gospel, and his unique piano style — he performed with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Stan Getz, Miles Davis, and Art Blakey, the latter with whom he founded the legendary Jazz Messengers.
