Despite some initial reluctance, Hancock began doubling on electric keyboards including the Fender Rhodes electric piano at Davis's insistence. Hancock adapted quickly to the new instruments, which proved to be important in his future artistic endeavors. Under the pretext that he had returned late from a honeymoon in Brazil, Hancock was dismissed from Davis's band. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African-American community, was heralded as "Album of the Year" by Time Magazine. 1995's The New Standard found Hancock and an all-star band including John Scofield, DeJohnette and Michael Brecker, interpreting pop songs by Nirvana, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles, Prince, Peter Gabriel and others.

HENRY thins FRANCIS - Piano, Arranger, Leader Henry performs in the styles of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Fats Waller (hence the name "thins") - all of which are lamentably seldom heard today. Henry is best known as a stride piano soloist, but he finds wearing his other hats in The Swing Legacy equally enjoyable. Her principal influences are Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O'Day, Julie London, and Peggy Lee, and her singing consistently echoes the jazz tradition. She has a huge repertoire drawn from the classic era of American song, and although she reinterprets the melody as all good jazz singers do, she always respects the original beauty of the songs. TODD BAKER - Bass Todd is one of the few bass players today who has the desire and skill to produce a big sound without electronic assistance - a dying art, unfortunately.
