Herbie Hancock on radio and TV next week

March 11, 2009
Jazz pianist/keyboardist Herbie Hancock, one of the world’s great musicians and long-time favourite of Music For Grown-Ups, makes a couple of welcome broadcast appearances next week.

On Monday 16 March at 2315 BBC Radio 3’s Jazz On 3 has excerpts from Hancock’s gig at the London Jazz Festival last November.

And then on Wednesday 18 March at 2405, in the last episode of Channel 4’s patchy Spectacle series, Elvis Costello interviews (and, presumably, plays alongside) the great pianist.

A rare treat for lovers of grown-up music!
