A Teaser For Herbie Hancock's 'Imagine Project'

Wherein Herbie Hancock travels the globe with a camera crew (and a $2,500 Canon 5D on his own person), playing with musical stars from around the world:

This is the EPK for Hancock's The Imagine Project, due out this summer, as mentioned here earlier. This video alone features Seal, Pink, Jeff Beck, Konono No. 1, Lionel Loueke, Ceu, Dave Matthews, Lisa Hannigan, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Chaka Khan, Tinariwen, The Chieftains, Marcus Miller, Wayne Shorter, Oumou Sangare, Juanes, James Morrison ...

You'll see that you can also download "The Song Goes On," featuring Anoushka Shankar, Chaka Khan and Wayne Shorter, via the widget above (in exchange for an e-mail address). It's certainly one of the better songs I've heard so far from the album. And of course, a happy belated birthday to Herbie Hancock, who turned 70 on Monday.
