This reflective and invaluable memoir tells the story of Hancock's incredible success as a musician, from his beginnings as a child prodigy to his work with artists like Miles Davis and Stevie Wonder. In this book the legendary jazz musician and composer reflects on a thriving career that has spanned seven decades, from his beginnings as a child prodigy to his work in Miles Davis' second great quintet; from his innovations as the leader of his own sextet to his collaborations with everyone from Wayne Shorter to Joni Mitchell.
