This semester Herbie Hancock was guest professor at Harvard. For the Norton Lectures he will present 6 presentations in the Sanders Theatre. Since I am in Boston I attended these lectures. Last summer I met Herbie backstage during Umbria jazz after I saw him perform a duo concert with Chick Corea. He is one of my all time favorite pianists. It was amazing to hear Herbie talk about Miles Davis, about life and buddhism, play some amazing music, tested his new gear and sharing his opinions with us.
Below you can see all the lectures since Harvard put them online for anyone to see. Enjoy!
1 – Wisdom of Miles Davis
2 – Breaking the Rules
