Hancock was born in Chicago on April 12, 1940. Hancock, along with Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and McCoy Tyner, is one of the primary influences on contemporary jazz piano. He came to prominence in the classic Miles Davis Quintet of 1963-'68. Hancock compositions have become jazz standards, including "Maiden Voyage," "Canteloupe Island," "Dolphin Dance" and "Speak Like A Child."
