Episode 4 - The Story of Herbie Hancock

EPISODE FOUR

Rock It

In this episode, we tackle the third set of records in your VMP Anthology box set: The Piano and Future Shock. These albums represent the breadth of Herbie’s sonic pushing, as The Piano is a solo piano record, and Future Shock was the first album to meld jazz and hip-hop. Both of them groundbreaking in their own way. In the first section of the podcast, we hear from Herbie on how The Piano came to be, and from fellow pianist Robert Glasper who talks about the album’s mastery. Then, we hear from Herbie about the making of Future Shock, and close this episode with a lengthy interview with Grandmaster DXT, the DJ and turntablist who invented the sound of scratching on record.
