A classically-trained pianist, Hancock began his career with the solo album ''Takin' Off'' in 1962, the source of his SignatureSong "Watermelon Man". However, his career really took off once he joined MilesDavis' "second great quintet" a year later, where he stayed until 1968. In the quintet, he developed his signature style and started incorporating elements of rock music (especially towards the end).

* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: His 1977 to 1982-era material. The music he put out during that period was filled with generic Disco (1977 to 1980) and even more generic R&B/Post-Funk (1981 to 1982) Some of them even featured vocals, which did not even exist previously. His 1983 album Future Shock also did this, with a more Hip-Hoppy electro feel, and Dis Is Da Drum in 1994 featured Acid Jazz and a Jazz-Hop song with a rap in it.

He moved in a more pop-oriented direction in the late seventies (which is frequently regarded as a SeasonalRot by fans and critics) first with the not quite commercial but very much vocalized ''Sunlight'' (five songs, the three sung ones being respectively 9, 8 and 7 minutes long). He definitely started dabbling the commercial stuff first with ''Feets Don't Fail Me Now'', followed by the Roy Tempterton-autored ''Lite Me Up'' surfing the ill-fated disco-pop wave far too late.
