Herbie Hancock Announces Imagine Project Guest Stars
Birthday tribute concerts will take place on June 24 at Carnegie Hall and September 1 at the Hollywood Bowl. Tour dates for The Imagine Project will be announced for the fall.
The Imagine Project is the next step in Hancock's extraordinary ground-breaking career, and builds upon his recent successes and recognition. (2007 Grammy for Album of the Year - "River/The Joni Letters", Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World, multiple award-winning album/film, "Possibilities", Jazz Chair for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, amongst many others). Award-winning producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Madeline Peyroux, Luciana Souza, Tracy Chapman, Melody Gardot and Hancock's collaborator on "River") has served as producer on a number of the album's tracks.
"Music truly is the universal language," says Hancock, "The Imagine Project will explore that concept across the globe, uniting a myriad of cultures through song and positive creative expression. My hope is that the music will serve as a metaphor for the actions taken by the inhabitants of this wonderful planet as a call for world harmony on all levels."
