Herbie Hancock’s star-studded The Imagine Project was several years in the making, and recorded in seven countries with musicians from all over the globe. Most selections are interpretations of well-known pop, folk, and soul songs. The best things here are indeed fine. There’s a gorgeous reading of Baden Powell’s Tempo de Amore thanks to Lucas Martins’ bassline and CU’s singing. Space Captain by the Derek Trucks-Susan Tedeschi Band –with Hancock and Colaiuta — brings out a much-needed, soulful grit in Tedeschi’s vocals, gospelized four-party harmony, and tough slide playing by Trucks. A full-on Indian session band interacts with Shorter’s knotty soprano sax, and the only truly engaged Hancock piano playing on the set. Thom Jurek, Rovi.
