Concert Preview - Herbie Hancock

By Mark Towns
Published: April 24 1997, Houston Press

Herbie Hancock is certifiably one of the greatest living legends of jazz. After first achieving prominence as a member of Miles Davis's seminal mid-'60s quintet, Hancock went on to practically invent electric funk jazz with his '70s era albums. In the early '80s, he even became an MTV star with the "Rockit" video. So what's this cutting edge pioneer up to these days? Would you believe playing Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel cover tunes? How about acoustic piano renditions of hits by Nirvana, Don Henley and Babyface? Believe it. He's either lost his mind or is taking a side path off the road of a great career. At Rockefeller's, 3620 Washington Avenue, at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 30. Tickets are $25 to $50. 869-TICS.
