Beginning a new blog…
Hello, everyone. My goal for this blog is primarily to reflect on topics related to the book I am writing. The title is “You’ll Know When You Get There: Herbie Hancock and the Mwandishi Band.” The publisher will be University of Chicago Press. I am most of the way through the first draft. Having written mostly about the band and its music, I’m now thinking and writing about the early development of Hancock’s approach to the piano. My main work for the coming months will be to reorganize everything and write a version of the book that will be fun and engaging for a wider audience. I welcome your comments as the project progresses.
You can find a preliminary website about this writing project at http://www.electricsongs.com/mwandishimusic/
If you have memories, experiences, or thoughts about Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band, I welcome them! Feel free to write.
