Music Icon HERBIE HANCOCK visits Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club at 135 Congress Street for Four Historic Performances on June 14 & 15 at 7 and 9:30 P.M.. Herbie Hancock will be joined by 5x-GRAMMY® Award-Winning Trumpeter Terence Blanchard and Acclaimed Jazz Guitarist Lionel Loueke as well as Bassist James Genus and Drummer Justin Tyson.

Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club is honored to welcome legendary musical force Herbie Hancock for these two nights—June 14 and 15 — in which he will perform four shows (an early and late performance both nights). The four shows mark one of Hancock’s first club dates in years, and one of only three stops in the Northeast this summer. The Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club shows will come on the heels of performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Hancock, who has been bringing his musical prowess to stages worldwide since 1961, has not done a club show in a dozen years, which adds even more magic and prestige to these performances.

  • “I am thrilled to be able to finally make it to Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” said Hancock in a statement. “It’s deeply important to me that rooms like Jimmy’s continue to exist around the world.”

Hancock—a 14-time GRAMMY® Award Winner— now in the sixth decade of his professional life, 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 70’s — with record-breaking albums such as “Headhunters” — that combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. “Rockit” and “Future Shock” marked Hancock’s foray into electronic dance sounds; during the same period, he also continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams. Throughout his explorations, he has transcended limitations & genres while maintaining his unmistakable voice.

Tickets for these soon to be legendary performances featuring HERBIE HANCOCK are available on Ticketmaster and on the Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Website.
