At the young age of 25, Herbie Hancock was improvising in ways that no one before him had ever done.
Listen how he trailblazes his way through his solo from a classic Wayne Shorter tune “Witch Hunt” from Speak No Evil (1965).
He strings together a relentless flow of triplet lines traveling in chromatic fourth intervals.
With playing like this, it’s no wonder he inspired generations of countless others!
