Herbie Hancock: the Blue Note Years
Pianist Nick Rosen, helped by the classic jazz front line of trumpet and saxophone, pays tribute to a living jazz legend: Herbie Hanock.
A fateful snowstorm led to a last-minute opportunity to play with Donald Byrd – Blue Note’s biggest artist at the time. The seven-year marriage of jazz’s brightest young star and its iconic record label produced some of the most popular jazz of the 1960s. It also chronicled the journey of a kid who wrote music about his childhood neighborhood in Chicago to a man who would write about his more worldly view of life during the Civil Rights era.
