The Times They Are A-Changin' (feat. The Chieftains, Toumani Diabete, Lisa Hannigan)
Label: Hancock Records
Jazz genius Herbie Hancock went on a global pop mission to connect different artists and musical styles together with the concept of world peace and human connections. The results play like a more star-studded version of Playing For Change, with acts as diverse as Pink, Los Lobos, John Legend, Ceu, Jeff Beck, Tinariwen and The Chieftains coming together to cover classic tunes. Highlights include Herbie joining Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi on "Space Captain," and a reading of Bob Marley's "Exodus" that combines Africa, Mexico and America.
