Herbie Hancock announced an expansive, full-band summer tour launching June 26th at the Alfa Jazz Festival in Lviv, Ukraine and concluding July 29th at the Marciac Jazz Festival in Marciac, France. The U.S. trek commences August 6th in Red Bank, New Jersey and wraps with two dates – September 15th and 17th – at the Monterey Jazz Festival in Monterey, California. (The second show is a dual performance with Chick Corea, Hancock’s former bandmate in Miles Davis’ pioneering fusion band.)

Hancock’s live line-up will include drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, bassist James Genus, guitarist Lionel Loueke (through the Monterey dates) and multi-instrumentalist Terrace Martin. Additional shows will be announced soon. 

Hancock’s most recent studio album is 2010’s The Imagine Project, featuring multi-cultural renditions of classic songs by John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Peter Gabriel, among others.

The Headhunters virtuoso announced the American dates with a promo video featuring an extended keytar solo alongside bassist James Genus.
