Support will come from Robert Glasper Experiment with special guests to be announced. The show starts at 7 p.m.; doors open at 6 p.m. 

"I'm looking forward to playing some new music that I'm working on and a new approach on some of my older tunes,” Hancock said. “I'm also excited about working with some young musicians touring with me for the first time.”

The date is part of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, a leading presenter of free cultural programming in the New York Borough.
