Chance to Hear Herbie Hancock

Article's tools:

Jazz legend Herbie Hancock will play the National Philharmonic in Warsaw Dec. 1 as part of his Herbie Hancock Sextet tour.

Anyone even remotely interested in jazz has heard some of the American musician's songs. A precocious wunderkind, the young Herbie played a Mozart piano concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the tender age of 11.

The following five decades of his career were filled with endless concerts and recordings, some of which have become timeless jazz classics, for instance "Cantaloupe Island," "Maiden Voyage," "Eye of the Hurricane," "Dolphin Dance," and "Chameleon."

All in all, Hancock has won 12 Grammies and an Oscar for Best Original Score for 1986's Round Midnight. His latest album The River: The Joni Letters was voted Album of the Year in the general category as well as Best Contemporary Jazz Album at last year's jubilee 50th Grammy Awards.

At the National Philharmonic concert, the other members of the sextet appearing alongside Hancock will be: Terence Blanchard (trumpet), James Genus (bass), Lionel Loueke (guitar), Gregoire Maret (harmonica), and Kendrick Scott (drums).

Dec. 1, 7 p.m.
