Between The Lines
Pianist Herbie Hancock and vocalist Cassandra Wilson can both claim direct lineage to Miles Davis. Wilson once said that she was a 'child' of Miles Davis, while Hancock began his career with this father figure. Both of them keep Davis' heritage alive by combining the courage to keep reinventing themselves and their music with the curiosity to explore new avenues and to keep seeking where others have long since found. Herbie Hancock and Cassandra Wilson are among the most exciting performers in the music business; one a pioneer, the other a frontier runner, yet both artists from whom we can expect the unexpected – music between the lines.
