Now in the sixth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: at the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet that pioneered a groundbreaking sound in jazz, Hancock also developed new approaches on his own recordings. His work in the 1970s – with record-breaking albums such as Headhunters – combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. Rockit and Future Shock marked Hancock's foray into electronic dance sounds; during the same period he also continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. In honor of his work, Hancock was awarded the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in February 2016.
