Preview: Herbie Hancock Plays BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! This Thursday

Herbiehancock_625It's not every day that one of the true living legends of jazz plays in your backyard, but that's what folks can expect this Thursday when pianist Herbie Hancock brings his new band to Celebrate Brooklyn for a special benefit show. As if that weren't enough, opening are the always-fun Jamie Lidell, and Brooklyn's own Robert Glasper Experiment. Tickets, which are priced from $49.50 to $97.50, can be purchased at the (le) Poisson Rouge box office or online. Having just heard Herbie's sometime playing partner Chick Corea last weekend up at Tanglewood, I'm in piano jazz heaven right now. Do not miss this one.
