Mina Yu Quartet with Jess Palmer plays Herbie Hancock.

Recently relocated from NYC, Mina Yu quartet and special guest Jess Palmer present a tribute to legendary pianist Herbie Hancock at the Paris Cat Jazz Club. Mina has a unique connection to Herbie music, having worked and studied with his longtime drummer Terri Lyne Carrington whilst studying at Berklee College of Music. Like Herbie, Mina's music is sophisticated, experimental and grounded in discipline and respect for the music.

A giant of the piano, Herbie Hancock's career kicked off when he joined the Miles Davis band as a young virtuosic pianist. Equally influential as a composer and band leader, his early albums, Empyrean Isles (1964) and Maiden Voyage (1965) are considered to be the most famous and influential jazz LPs of the 1960s, winning praise for both their innovation and accessibility, the latter demonstrated by the enormous popularity of the Maiden Voyage title track as a jazz standard, and by the jazz rap group US3 having a hit single with "Cantaloop" derived from "Cantaloupe Island" on Empyrean Isles some twenty five years later. He has continued to innovate, releasing Future Shock in the 1970s, and working with everyone from Nora Jones to Tina Turner and John Mayer in later decades.

The Mina Yu Quartet consists of some of the most promising jazz talent in the Melbourne, including Greg Sher, band leader of Rookies and Night Dreamers, Ben Charnley, who studied at Berklee and NYU and Hiroki Hoshino, one of the hardest working bassists in town. Jess Palmer will add sophistication and warmth to the ensemble with her smooth vocal tone and will sing numbers from the legendary Hancock album "Possibilities".

Join the Mina Yu Quartet on a musical adventure as they take the mysterious and deep music of Herbie Hancock and infuse it with a fresh energy.
