Herbie Hancock’s latest album, The Imagine Project, is a project that in many ways mirrors Hancock’s 2005 mega-hit, Possibilities. The album blends pop and jazz together with the help of a large and all-star cast of musicians such as Dave Matthews, Pink, John Legend, Seal, Jeff Beck and many others.
Several bassists contributed to the project, including Marcus Miller (tracks 1, 6), Tal Wilkenfeld (9), Oteil Burbridge (4), Larry Klein (tracks 1, 5, 7, 10), Lucas Martins (3), Abdallah Ag Alhousseyni (7) and Danny Barnes (8). Wilkenfeld is currently on tour with Hancock in support of the album.
