Out now, the outrageous half of OutKast about talks his first album in 17 years, his wild ayahuasca trip and why he gets so many requests to play flute at funerals.
Captivating the world with the beat of his own drum for more than half a century is no easy feat by any means, and when it comes to the 18th rendition of “Jazz Is Dead” featuring Tony Allen, there is no amount of words that can really explain how delicious this album is.
Hancock spoke with KMHD via his studio in California to discuss the new quintet on his worldwide tour, why he will never become the jazz police and his meaning of jazz without boundaries.
