Herbie Hancock shakes things up at the Grammy's this year as he takes home the Grammy for Album of the Year. It has been over 40 years since a jazz artist has won best album! Shake, shake, shake...shake, shake, shake...shake it Herbie...shake it Herbie.
I admit that I have not listened to much of Herbie Hancock's music but I immediately jumped on itunes to listen to his award winning album, River: The Joni Letters. I quickly was drawn into these tracks that feature recognizable artists including, Joni Mitchell, Corinne Bailey Ray, Norah Jones and Tina Turner. I would definitely say that I am hooked on Hancock's genre-stretching music.
