Happy birthday, Herbie Hancock!
The keyboardist played in Miles Davis’ “second great quintet,” wrote classics spanning the music spectrum — from the game-changing post-bop of “Watermelon Man” to, yes, “Rockit” — and generally has one of the coolest, funkiest synth collections around. 
Hear Herbie Hancock in a synth-heavy set from the 2008 Newport Jazz Festival.
Hancock also sat in with Marian McPartland for an episode of Piano Jazz in 1987.
