May 16, 2017

Los Angeles, California. Herbie Hancock and his band will tour Europe and the U.S. extensively this Summer and Fall, making stops at the major European Jazz Festivals as well as New York’s Beacon Theatre, The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and The Monterey Jazz Festival, where Hancock will be honored at the annual Jazz Legends Gala. In addition, fans will be treated to a taste of Hancock’s much talked-about and highly-anticipated new album, a project that has been in the works for several years, along with music from throughout his celebrated career.

An all-star band featuring Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, James Genus on bass, Lionel Loueke on guitar (through Monterey) and multi-instrumentalist Terrace Martin will accompany Hancock on the road for the duration of the dates.

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. Hancock received an Academy Award for his Round Midnight film score and 14 Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year for “River: The Joni Letters.” He currently serves as Creative Chair for Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and as Institute Chairman of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. In 2011 Hancock was named a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador by UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova, received a Kennedy Center Honors Award in 2013 and a Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2016.
