Reviewed on 12/31/2016...
It seems others really like this but it had a documentary with the short bursts of music. I was wanting to see Herbie Hancock breakdance music of the 80s and I think the music part of less than 30 seconds total with the documentary being maybe 3 minutes. If you are looking for the 80's Herbie, then do not request this dvd.

Movie Reviews

Not what I expected
James W. | 07/19/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I read the only review for this item and ordered it, expecting to see a fantastic display of sound and some of the interaction of these artists with Mr Hancock as they created music, each colaborating to have a unique blend of sounds.
Actually this is only a documentary showing this interaction, and as such is very interesting.
But if you are looking to see an hear the full length videos of these great colaborations you will be disappointed, that is not included in this dvd. Only small samples are there for you to see.
This was a real disapointmet because the quality of video and audio are fantastic.

Hancock's life and friends
T. Davis | Seattle, WA | 09/07/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Herbie Hancock is a man who embraces all kinds of people and experiences, an explorer in many cultural and musical fields. This DVD is a good introduction to him and his life, featuring snippets from his early quartet years with legends Miles Davis and Wayne Shorter to his forays into electronic funk with the Headhunters to his most recent collaborations.

Some of these sessions are more successful than others, but all are interesting. Hancock performs with great stars like Annie Lennox, Carlos Santana, and Paul Simon, makes international connections with singers like Angelique Kidjo and composers like Brian Eno, and concludes with a trip to Japan where his spiritual side is revealed. The disc presents many enjoyable and insightful moments in the creative process.

I have to point out, however, that this film is primarily a making-of documentary. It doesn't present finished, polished work, serving instead as an invitation to listen to the Possibilities CD as well as to those recordings produced during Hancock's earlier incarnations. As such, I would say it's more of a DVD to rent than one you need to own, even if you are a big Hancock fan."
Excellent Artistry

"Watch this and be inspired by the awesome Herbie Hancock. The recording sessions are great. The music and the movie flow along like a terrific jazz solo, riffing on all kinds of themes but Herbie brings it together into a whole. Just watching him play on the piano is a treat. If you're not that familiar with this living jazz legend, check this out and you'll admire both the man and his music."
