Herbie Hancock: The Imagine Project

After taking home the Grammy award for album of the year with his last CD, Herbie’s latest release is an impressive all-star world music outing promoting peace and global responsibility. Recorded at locations around the globe, it features contributions from Jeff Beck, Pink, Seal, Dave Matthews, Anoushka Shankar, Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Chaka Khan, Indie.Arie, the Chieftains, Los Lobos, Wayne Shorter, and many others.

The last decade of recordings from him have been consistently great, challenging, and of the highest artistic quality. He may be turning 70 this year, but he is producing some of his best work now. Highly recommended. (A film project is also part of this project. Preview it here.)
