“nothing short of breathtaking… In all, a classic!” – JazzTimes
As alumni of Miles Davis, all three musicians contributed to the recognizable sound of Miles Davis’ musical vision. Hancock’s futuristic piano virtuosity fuses R&B influences with new electronic sounds as he helped invent Jazz / Funk and became one of the few Jazz greats to have multiple albums hit the charts, while his own compositions became standards to the Jazz repertoire. After receiving the prestigious Grammy Award for Album of the Year for his CD River: The Joni Letters, and his Grammy performance of the song Rockit, which helped give birth to the Scratch DJ culture, Hancock elevated his status as one of the greatest and most influential musicians alive.
Billy Cobham is one of the world’s foremost drummers and percussionists. Having played on Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew, founded two of the most influential Fusion groups of all time, Dreams and the Mahuvishnu Orchestra (with guitarist John McLaughlin), and played with the Grateful Dead and the Saturday Night Live Band, Cobham is major percussionist in both the Jazz and Rock worlds and plays with a rare combination of power, precision and endurance.
Ron Carter, with his legendary style, unique tone, and impeccable sense of time, is considered the premiere bassist in modern Jazz. He has excelled as a composer, arranger, leader, and musician, having performed on well over 3,000 albums.
Complete with Dolby Audio, this special and historic DVD program, Herbie Hancock Trio: Hurricane!, features a night of spectacular compositions and improvisations that display the unforgettable and passionate interplay between Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Billy Cobham, three Jazz masters on a search for musical excellence.
