    Imagine There's No Countries

    Herbie Hancock has followed up his 2008 Album Of The Year, River: The Joni Letters, with another strong contender for the very same honor. The Imagine Project is a highly sophisticated release containing first rate performances from some world class talent....and I must stress the word 'world', for the performers are from all over the globe. I believe that nearly every continent is represented. This diversity of styles is exactly what makes this album such a unique listening experience. It isn't often that you'll hear relatively mainstream acts like Seal, Pink, Jeff Beck, Los Lobos or Chaka Khan paired with obscure artists such as Konono No 1, Tinariwen, Oumou Sangare, or K.S. Chithra.
    And with such diversity, it was imperative that Herbie chose well rounded musicians like Vinnie Colaiuta, Larry Klein, Marcus Miller, Tal Wilkenfeld, Alex Acuna and Manu Katche to provide a stellar rhythmic foundation for this music. Obviously with Hancock giving strong direction and his piano at the forefront, it is their musical knowledge and skills that give the music its inherent jazz shadings and prevent this collage of styles from suffering from what could be called the 'benefit song effect'.
    Only one track fails to impress me and that would be the weak collaboration with Dave Matthews on The Beatles classic Tomorrow Never Knows. Other than that, this is a project that I can highly recommend.
