Jazz keyboardist, bandleader and composer Herbie Hancock was a primary architect of the "post-bop" sound as a member of Miles Davis's Second Great Quintet, and developed electronic jazz-funk fusion on his landmark album, Headhunters. Hancock's creative blend of jazz, blues, and modern classical music has harmonic stylings much like the styles of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. Hancock talks with Jim Cunningham.
