If Herbie Hancock had vanished after his impactful mid-'60s tenure with the Miles Davis Quintet and pioneering Blue Note releases, his legacy as a jazz piano giant would endure. Hancock defied norms, steering from abstract electric jazz with Mwandishi to tight jazz-funk fusion in Head Hunters and venturing into electronic realms with Bill Laswell in the '80s. The Chicago-born icon's success followed a unique path, breaking down jazz-pop barriers. His versatility shines in covers of Joni Mitchell, collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat, and Flying Lotus, embodying the "Chameleon" spirit from his 1973 track.
