Chicago native Herbie Hancock is a true icon of modern music. Throughout his explorations, he transcends limitations and genres while still maintaining his unique, unmistakable voice. With an illustrious career spanning five decades, he continues to amaze audiences and never ceases to expand the public's vision of what music, particularly jazz, is all about today. Hancock's 2007 recording 'River: The Joni Letters,' featuring the music of Joni Mitchell, won the 2008 Grammy for Album of the Year.
