Legendary pianist and composer Herbie Hancock has shaped the direction of jazz, fusion, funk and hip-hop for more than six decades. A renowned leader in world culture, technology, business and music, he serves as a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, Creative Chair for Jazz with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Chairman of the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz. He will be joined by five-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist Dianne Reeves, the pre-eminent jazz vocalist in the world, whose virtuosity and improvisational prowess put her in a class by herself. Hancock and Reeves will share the stage with the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz Performance at UCLA Ensemble—six of the most gifted young jazz musicians from around the world who were selected to study in a full scholarship master’s programme with the greatest jazz musicians of our time.
