Herbie Hancock to Lecture at Harvard University

Herbie Hancock gets a standing ovation at the Grammy Awards for the performance of Rockit.

Today, the news reports Mr. Hancock is named the 2014 Charles Eliot Norton Professor of Poetry.  Also, he will be presenting six lectures in February and March at the Sanders Theatre  on Harvard University’s campus in Cambridge Massachusetts . These lectures are open to the public (with tickets) and are a recommended as not to missed by our staff. Here are the details, dates and times.

As one of Turntabling’s most treasured artists, Herbie Hancock’s works across five decades are standards in our vinyl collection and dance floor.

In 1966 he composed the Swinging London soundtrack of Blow-Up. Blow-Up is one of the films that brought our staff to soundtrack appreciation in the first place.

We’re delighted  to send our congratulations to an artist who we feel is more than worthy of all the awards and praise he’s collected so far. We’re also a little sad. Turntabling staff can’t run to attend these, sure to be amazing, lecture events with a great man.
