Herbie Hancock on life

This morning I stumbled across a Showtime special Herbie Hancock: Possibilities. It’s one of those companion video pieces to a compilation album. Guest artists include Sting, Annie Lennox, Paul Simon, John Mayer, and others.

Something Hancock just said about music hit me like a bolt of lightning.

“I mean, isn’t it a human being’s highest goal to be able to take whatever happens. Whether it’s feast or famine, whether it’s pleasant things or unpleasant things. To take those things and somehow turn them into something of value.”
