Herbie Hancock is known as one of the great innovators of jazz piano.
In honor of his 80th birthday last week, we’ve got a lick this week from his iconic record “Maiden Voyage” (1965).
He introduces his solo with this ascending minor third idea on what would become a jazz standard tune of his, “Dolphin Dance.”
Happy Birthday, Herbie!
