Tribute to Herbie Hancock – Selected & Mixed by Jonny Drop of The Expansions

Jazz

Where to start? Herbie Hancock is a living icon, not just in Jazz music, but also as a cultural personality.

His musical cannon spans 60 years and surpasses nearly all benchmarks. In-fact, he sets the benchmarks. Delving into his discography suddenly makes one realize how incredibly versatile and prolific he is. From playing straight ahead Jazz with Miles Davis in the ’60s, to constructing Headhunters (the 2nd highest selling ‘Jazz’ album of all time, after Miles’ Kind of Blue) Herbie refuses to settle into one style. The winner of more than 16 Grammys, composer of film soundtracks, collaborator with the up and coming and the trad masters; put simply Hancock is a genius. We’ve attempted to pay tribute to his astounding back catalogue by putting together a selection from our collective Hancock LPs, and even though we only touch the surface, you’ll find a fairly broad representation of his music within. There’s enough material to do another 30 of these mixes!
