Episode 3 - The Story of Herbie Hancock

EPISODE THREE

Eye of the Hurricane

In this episode, we cover the second set of records in your box, Head Hunters and Live Under the Sky. These albums celebrate Herbie’s landmark move into funk, and his team up with other jazz legends for the supergroup V.S.O.P. In the first segment of this podcast, we hear Herbie talk about Head Hunters, and how it became an unlikely hit, and trying the album out in dance clubs before it was released. Then we get Robert Glasper and Corinne Bailey Rae’s impressions of the album, before Herbie talks briefly about Live Under the Sky, and what he remembers most from those shows.
