Download Snow White The tale of Snow White features one of the most fabulous baddies of all time in the form of the Wicked Queen, vainly peering into her mirror and asking - Who is the fairest of us all?
Considered a child prodigy he played the first movement of Mozart 's Piano Concerto No. He was also influenced by records of the vocal group the Hi-Lo's. I could hear stuff and that's when I really learned some much farther-out voicings — like the harmonies I used on Speak Like a Child — just being able to do that.
I really got that from Clare Fischer 's arrangements for the Hi-Lo's. Clare Fischer was a major influence on my harmonic concept You know, that's where it came from.
Grinnell also awarded him an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree in  . Byrd was attending the Manhattan School of Music in New York at the time and suggested that Hancock study composition with Vittorio Gianniniwhich he did for a short time in The pianist quickly earned a reputation, and played subsequent sessions with Oliver Nelson and Phil Woods.
Hancock was introduced to Davis by the young drummer Tony Williamsa member of the new band. Davis personally sought out Hancock, whom he saw as one of the most promising talents in jazz.
The rhythm section Davis organized was young but effective, comprising bassist Ron Carteryear-old drummer Williams, and Hancock on piano. After George Coleman and Sam Rivers each took a turn at the saxophone spot, the quintet gelled with Wayne Shorter on tenor saxophone.
This quintet is often regarded as one of the finest jazz ensembles  yet. The second great quintet was where Hancock found his own voice as a pianist. Not only did he find new ways to use common chords, but he also popularized chords that had not previously been used in jazz.
Hancock also developed a unique taste for "orchestral" accompaniment — using quartal harmony and Debussy -like harmonies, with stark contrasts then unheard of in jazz. With Williams and Carter he wove a labyrinth of rhythmic intricacy on, around and over existing melodic and chordal schemes.
In the latter half of the s their approach became so sophisticated and unorthodox that conventional chord changes would hardly be discernible; hence their improvisational concept would become known as "Time, No Changes". His albums Empyrean Isles and Maiden Voyage were to be two of the most famous and influential jazz LPs of the s, winning praise for both their innovation and accessibility the latter demonstrated by the subsequent enormous popularity of the Maiden Voyage title track as a jazz standardand by the jazz rap group US3 having a hit single with " Cantaloop " derived from "Cantaloupe Island" on Empyrean Isles some twenty nine years later.
Empyrean Isles featured the Davis rhythm section of Hancock, Carter and Williams with the addition of Hubbard on cornetwhile Maiden Voyage also added former Davis saxophonist Coleman with Hubbard remaining on trumpet. Both albums are regarded as among the principal foundations of the post-bop style.
During this period, Hancock also composed the score to Michelangelo Antonioni 's film Blowupthe first of many film soundtracks he recorded in his career. As well as feature film soundtracks, Hancock recorded a number of musical themes used on American television commercials for such then well known products as Pillsbury 's Space Food SticksStandard OilTab diet cola and Virginia Slims cigarettes.
Hancock also wrote, arranged and conducted a spy type theme for a series of F. William Free commercials for Silva Thins cigarettes.
Hancock liked it so much he wished to record it as a song but the ad agency would not let him. He rewrote the harmony, tempo and tone and recorded the piece as the track "He Who Lives in Fear" from his The Prisoner album of Despite some initial reluctance, Hancock began doubling on electric keyboards including the Fender Rhodes electric piano at Davis's insistence.
Hancock adapted quickly to the new instruments, which proved to be important in his future artistic endeavors. Under the pretext that he had returned late from a honeymoon in Brazil, Hancock was dismissed from Davis's band.
In the summer of Hancock formed his own sextet. However, although Davis soon disbanded his quintet to search for a new sound, Hancock, despite his departure from the working band, continued to appear on Davis records for the next few years. One of the jazzier songs on the record, the moody ballad "Tell Me a Bedtime Story", was later re-worked as a more electronic sounding song for the Quincy Jones album Sounds Hancock became fascinated with electronic musical instruments.
Together with the profound influence of Davis's Bitches Brewthis fascination culminated in a series of albums in which electronic instruments were coupled with acoustic instruments. Hancock's first ventures into electronic music started with a sextet comprising Hancock, bassist Buster Williams and drummer Billy Hartand a trio of horn players: Patrick Gleeson was eventually added to the mix to play and program the synthesizers.
The sextet, later a septet with the addition of Gleeson, made three albums under Hancock's name: MwandishiCrossings both on Warner Bros. Recordsand Sextant released on Columbia Records ; two more, Realization and Inside Out, were recorded under Henderson's name with essentially the same personnel.
The music exhibited strong improvisational aspect beyond the confines of jazz mainstream and showed influence from the electronic music of contemporary classical composers.
On Crossings as well as on Weather Report 's I Sing the Body Electricthe synthesizer is used more as an improvisatory global orchestration device than as a strictly melodic instrument.
An early review of Crossings in Downbeat complained about the synthesizer, but a few years later the magazine noted in a cover story on Gleeson that he was "a pioneer" in the field of electronics in jazz.
Hancock's three records released in —73 later became known as the "Mwandishi" albums, so-called after a Swahili name Hancock sometimes used during this era "Mwandishi" is Swahili for "writer".Herbie Faye was born on February 2, in New York City, New York, USA.
