SEE YOU OUT THERE
HERBIE HANCOCK – McCAW HALL
Now in the sixth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: at the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. In addition to being recognized as a legendary pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock has been an integral part of every popular music movement since the 1960’s. As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet that pioneered a groundbreaking sound in jazz, he also developed new approaches on his own recordings, followed by his work in the 70s – with record-breaking albums such as “Headhunters” – that combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style. In honor of his work,
Hancock was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in February 2016. Hancock is currently in the studio at work on a new album. Catch him live in Seattle on Thursday, March 1st. Listen to Carol’s interview with Herbie from 2010 HERE.
LIMITED & OUT OF PRINT
The highlight for this feature is actually Old Releases. For 11 years I had the distinct pleasure of curating music that featured the best in-the-moment music representing up-and-coming artists as well as some masters with their classics.
I get asked a lot about the CD samplers and recently came across a small stash of them. ONE of the rare volume 1 and a few of the rest that include Music samplers sent out to unveil the station with a narrated introduction. I’ve decided to make them available and clear out the closets. The pricing includes taxes and shipping to make it easy and goes to support staying connected with Smooth In Seattle. CD’s are available on a first come, first served basis. Thanks for the support.
