Working alongside Miles Davis could be a career highlight for any artist, but jazz musician Herbie Hancock hasn’t let it define his career. A pioneer of synthesizers and jazz-funk, the keyboardist boasts 14 Grammy awards, including an unlikely Album of the Year award for his 2008 album The Joni Letters. Rooted in the early 1960s Blue Note era, Hancock’s presence has continuously lent influence over acoustic and electronic jazz, rock and blues. Hear his modern takes on “Maiden Voyage,” “Chameleon,” “Watermelon Man” and “Rockit”on Sunday, Sept. 18, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $45–$65. 707.546.3600.
