EDITORS’ NOTES

In the jazz world, Herbie Hancock is known as the keys player in Miles Davis's second great quintet, but in the rap realm he's known for the way his funky riffs have been turned into hip-hop classics. Us3 and Digable Planets both used Herbie's melodies to help define the jazz rap era, while DJ Quik and Digital Underground were seduced by the funk pumping through his grooves.
