For the second installment of AllAboutJazz.com's new column, Jazz in the Aquarian Age Bob Kenselaar unearths a 1979 interview with pianist Herbie Hancock. At the time of this this interview, Hancock had been making ventures away from straight-ahead jazz for some time, but they were still fresh enough to have some fans up in arms. From today's perspective, though, it's clear that his eclecticism is a big part of what makes him the grand man of music that he is.

Check out Bob's updated interview, Herbie Hancock: The Chameleon Shows His Colors, today at AllAboutJazz.com!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
