This one-hour music intensive radio special salutes legendary keyboardist Herbie Hancock.  Forty years after "Maiden Voyage," thirty years after Headhunters and twenty years after "Rock-It," Herbie Hancock continues to be one of the world's most influential and innovative musicians with the release of his new CD, Possibilities.

Herbie Hancock: Imagine the Possibilities features Herbie's new collaborations with Sting, Carlos Santana, Paul Simon, John Mayer and others.  Your listeners will also hear exclusive studio clips and interactions between Herbie and these artists as they record their tracks for the new CD. 

You also get two of Herbie's classic tunes - "Chameleon" and "Hang Up Your Hang Ups" - recorded live at the 2005 Bonnaroo festival.  His all-star backup band (The Headhunters '05) features John Mayer, Roy Hargrove, Marcus Miller, Kenny Garrett and others.
