An Evening With Herbie Hancock and His Band

Sponsored by World Wide Technology, Inc. and Centene Charitable Foundation

At the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Herbie Hancock is a true icon of modern music. Throughout his explorations, he has transcended limitations and genres while maintaining his unmistakable voice. With an illustrious career spanning five decades, an Oscar, and 12 GRAMMY Awards, including the 2007 Album Of The Year for River: The Joni Letters, he continues to amaze audiences.

There are few artists in the music industry who have had more influence on acoustic and electronic jazz and R&B than Herbie Hancock. As the immortal Miles Davis said in his autobiography, “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.”

This performance is a part of Jazz St. Louis’ Legends of Jazz series at the Touhill.
