American pianist, bandleader and composer
Herbie Hancock was, early on, a member of the Miles Davis's second quintet. He was involved in the "post-bop" movement of jazz. He was one of the earliest jazz musicians to become involved with synthesizers and funk.
His greatest solo works included "Cantaloupe Island", "Watermelon Man", "Maiden Voyage", "Chameleon", and the singles "I Thought It Was You" and "Rockit".
