Herbie Hancock: The Rhapsody Interview (Exclusive)
Released: Nov 2007
Rhapsody may've been overawed by modern jazz's towering figure but Herbie Hancock remained unflappably cool throughout. Here, Hancock discusses bringing his minimalist -- but cinematic -- approach to the Joni Mitchell songbook and matching vocalists like Tina Turner, Corinne Bailey Rae and Tina Turner to specific Mitchell songs. Hancock also talks about working with Wayne Shorter, the influence of Miles Davis on his approach and how ahead of its time his electric Headhunters period was.
