I just picked the new Herbie Hancock CD, River: The Joni Letters<!--color--> and wanted to give everyone a heads up on this really nice recording. It's not at all like Hancock's last release, Possibilities<!--color-->, which was almost a pop record and didn't get much play on my system. River is much more of a "jazz" record with Hancock and his band mates (Lionel Loueke (guitar), Wayne Shorter (soprano and tenor saxophones), Dave Holland (bass), Vinnie Colaiuta (drums)) and string of guest vocalists taking Joni Mitchell's lovely tunes and fully exploring their jazz potential.
Here are some links to a couple of very nice reviews:
This one is well worth a listen.
