Herbie Hancock: Seven Decades—The Birthday Celebration

Few jazz pianists have had as wide an impact on American popular culture as Herbie Hancock, who scored hits like "Watermelon Man" and "Chameleon" in the '70s, blew up MTV with "Rockit" in the ’80s, and provided fodder for hip-hop heads to bite in "Cantaloupe Island" and "Maiden Voyage"—and that's not even taking into account his epochal playing with Miles Davis. Tonight's star-studded event includes ringers like India.Arie and Derek Trucks, but it's Hancock's interactions with the likes of Wayne Shorter, Joe Lovano and Dave Holland that'll have us on the edge of our seats.
