Herbie Hancock Is Working On New Music With Flying Lotus, Thundercat, and Pharrell



With being in the process of creating a new project, Herbie Hancock seems to be working with a handful of artists. These artists, so far, include Flying LotusThundercat, PharrellCarlos Santana, and Wayne Shorter.

After specifically speaking to Billboard, Herbie has taken notice of LA’s beat movement. He said “There’s a scene that’s happening, kind of an underground movement that’s given partially to a connection to jazz or a new form of jazz.” Herbie thinks that he might have something to add to the table, regarding the movement, “It’s very difficult to definite because what’s involved is very often hip-hop and rap and electronics and jazz elements, classical elements. It’s pretty broad-based, very open. It touches on the experimental while at the same time touches on the street. So I’m very intrigued. I feel I have something that I might be able to kind of bring along and add a little bit to the sauce with a lot of these young voices, so let’s see what we come up with.”

Flying Lotus and Herbie Hancock has already worked together on a few tracks, some featured on Flying Lotus’ last album You’re Dead!
