Music icon Herbie Hancock will headline Jazz 91.9 WCLK’s 43rd Anniversary Fall Benefit Concert on Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at Atlanta Symphony Hall. The evening will also be a celebration of the 2017 recipients of the Jazz Legacy Awards. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.

With an illustrious career spanning five decades and 14 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for “River: The Joni Letters,” Herbie Hancock continues to be a musical pioneer. As the legendary Miles Davis said in his autobiography, “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.”
