Jazz musician Herbie Hancock has been busy this year. He’s promoting his memoir Possibilities which includes stories spanning from his years playing with Miles Davis to when his hip-hop hybrid song “Rockit” hit the airwaves in 1983 to his most recent collaborations with Flying Lotus.
The 74-year-old artist was honored this week with a lifetime achievement award from the Jazz Foundation of America at the Apollo Theater. After receiving the award from actor Bruce Willis (remember, he used to have a music career), Hancock reunited his famous 70s band Mwandishi for the first time in 40 years to play the song 'Toys.' Hancock is going to follow up that once-in-a-lifetime performance on October 27, when he'll sit in with The Roots on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
