Great heroes have always been in the jazz world. Currently, there is no greater, more charismatic jazz pianist on the globe than Herbie Hancock. He's a living legend with a fascinating jazz history, but above all, he's also a contemporary-thinking artist who has been breaking down barriers since time immemorial, sparking controversy from time to time among purists. Like his former bandleader Miles Davis, Hancock is a musician who is as controversial as he is beloved, and who even today still knows how to deal magnificently with such diverse styles as hardbop or funk. Herbie sets standards, gladly also in collaboration with fellow musicians from the rock and pop segment.

Now he presents his Joni Mitchell project: "River: The Joni Letters". Produced by Mitchell's ex-husband Larry Klein, with two dozen of the most beautiful and best Joni Mitchell songs, played by Herbie and his jazzmen, including saxophone icon Wayne Shorter. The album includes gems of the singer / songwriter genre, sung by Joni Mitchell herself, but also by illustrious guests and Mitchell fans such as Norah Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae, Leonard Cohen and Tina Turner.
