A child piano prodigy, Herbie Hancock's career took off when he was invited to join the Miles Davis Quintet, recording classics including ESP, Nefertiti and Sorcerer and later appearing on In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew, heralding the birth of jazz-fusion. In 1973 Hancock's own band The Headhunters released Head Hunters featuring hit single Chameleon, becoming the first jazz album to record platinum sales.

Arriving in New Zealand two weeks after his 71st birthday, this year marks Hancock's 50th year as a professional musician.
