Jazz Legend Herbie Hancock to Perform in Croatia for the First Time

CroatiaAmerican jazz legend Herbie Hancock will perform in Croatia for the very first time later this year…

The 14-time Grammy and 1-time Oscar award winner will perform a the Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall in Zagreb on 26 November. As part of Miles Davis’s Second Great Quintet, Hancock helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the “post-bop” sound.

Hancock’s best-known solo works include “Cantaloupe Island”, “Watermelon Man”, “Maiden Voyage”, “Chameleon”, and the singles “I Thought It Was You” and “Rockit”. His 2007 tribute album River: The Joni Letters won the 2008 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, only the second jazz album ever to win the award, after Getz/Gilberto in 1965. In 2013 Hancock joined the University of California, Los Angeles faculty as a professor in the UCLA music department where he will teach jazz music.
