Hancock started his music career at the age of seven and was quickly recognized as a classical music prodigy. In 1952, he played the first movement of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 26 at a concert when he was only 11 years old. As a teenager, he heard the preeminent jazz musician Chris Anderson play and requested to be Anderson’s a student.

In 1962, he recorded his first solo album, Takin’ Off, which caught the attention of Miles Davis. Hancock joined Davis’ quintet and worked with bassist Ron Carter, drummer Tony Williams and tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter. The group performed together from 1963 to 1968, and it is often cited as one of the best jazz ensembles in the genre’s history.
