Alphabet Street – H – Herbie Hancock

Thursday 6th March / presented by Adam Trainer Peter Barr

Further down  Alphabet Street we roam with the dastardly duo of Dr Adam Trainer and Peter Barr, set to music from A to Z, they skip alphabetically.

A jaunt set to a nursery rhyme, you know the order but can’t at guess what comes next.

Lets listen to some sounds that champion innovation, and a synthesis of styles into the big old scary world of Jazz.

If you were to pick an artist that has pushed boundaries, consistently, then it would be Herbie Hancock.

Relearn your school rhymes

A is for Arab Strap, the Scottish Noise Rockers…

B is for Bootsy Collins, the Master of Funk…

C is for Neneh Cherry, the Rapper/Songwriter/Collaborator …

D is for Don Caballero, the polyrythmic Math rockers…

E is for Esquivel, the King of space-age pop…

F is for Fridge, a versatile group from Putney…

G is for Goldie, the Mastermind of Jungle and Drum n Bass..

H is for Herbie Hancock, an innovator of Jazz and Popular Music
