Headhunters Reunion

Jazz giant Herbie Hancock recently announced that he will perform four shows this summer, including a headlining appearance at Tennessee’s Bonaroo festival, with a reformed Headhunters ensemble.

The reformation is bittersweet, as none of the original Headhunters band members will participate. Though few feet are big enough for original Headhunters’ bassist Paul Jackson’s funky shoes, Hancock picked Marcus Miller for the coveted spot, so he’ll probably do alright. Guitarists John Mayer, Lionel Louie, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, trumpeter Roy Hargrove, and percussionist Munyungo Jackson round out the ensemble.
