Herbie Hancock is one of the greatest jazz pianists and composers of our time who became known for his melodic and accessible works and won a Grammy Award in 2008 for Album of the Year. Tonight, the iconic musician will record a performance for Austin City Limits, the long-running public television show dating back to 1976 that is filmed in Austin, Texas. After the recording of the performance is edited, Hancock’s episode will mark his debut on that nationally broadcast television show.
