As part of Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet, Hancock helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section, and was one of the primary architects of the “post-bop” sound. Later, he was one of the first jazz musicians to embrace synthesizers and funk. Yet for all his restless experimentalism, Hancock’s music is often melodic and accessible; he has had many songs cross over and achieved success among pop audiences.
