YOU'LL KNOW WHEN YOU GET THERE: ON HERBIE HANCOCK AND THE MWANDISHI BAND
From Herbie Hancock's work with Miles Davis to the experimental use of synthesizers, jazz historian/author Bob Gluck (You'll Know When You Get There) uncovers the many ingredients that formed Hancock's grand creative experiment, the revolutionary Mwandishi Band in this talk at 92YTribeca on February 7. Playing some of the most innovative music of the 1970s, fusing an assortment of musical genres, American and African cultures, and acoustic and electronic sounds, the Mwandishi Band shaped jazz and American popular music. You'll Know When You Get There was one of Spin's "10 Best Music Books of 2012" and Downbeat called it "fascinating...an excellent primer."
