"A modern icon, Herbie Hancock has transcended limitations and genres throughout his musical explorations. With 12 Grammy Awards and a career spanning five decades, he has had an influence on acoustic and electronic jazz and R&B that few can match. He also maintains a career outside the performing stage and recording studio as creative chair for jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and institute chairman of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. A founder of the International Committee of Artists for Peace, Hancock continues to sit at the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music."
