Herbie Hancock in Birmingham

The only good thing about today was hearing news about Herbie Hancock coming to Birmingham next month!
Hopefully we’ll be able to hear the music from his last album “River: Joni Letters” witch was a tribute to Joni Mitchell. Beautiful record with explicit performers like Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland, Joni herself, Norah Jones, Luciana Souza (who was by the way performing in Birmingham Town Hall last year with Gil Goldstein), Leonard Cohen and more… These guys make this music sound so different but never the less beautiful. Hancock won’t be touring with those artists but I’m sure this concert will be as always a spiritual experience.
Have a look at this little film that will tell you more about making the album:

Hancock, one of the most influential jazz pianists, will be performing in Birmingham Town Hall on the 20th of November.
If you’re around that time, you MUST go!
