Throwback: Happy 82nd Birthday, Herbie Hancock!

It’s Aries season, y’all! And the month or so of the astrological sign is busy and auspicious for music history:

One of the greatest living jazz pianists, Herbie Hancock is also a fellow Aries, whose birthday is today. Hancock, who is still ridiculously active at 82, has bounced around several different styles of jazz, while also being an early adopter of synthesizers, programming, DJ scratching and a lot more. He’s also a living link to some of music’s greatest names including Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Jaco Pastorius, Joni Mitchell, and countless others.
