Críticas:

"This book is many treasures. You have to read it to understand Herbie Hancock, to read and understand Mr. Hancock explaining how he achieved things. It is also a great treasure to make contact. The contact is you and Herbie telling you about himself. You are receiving the information and understandings of himself to you. He is very, very clear. Thank you, Herbie, because so many geniuses like yourself in the arts have trouble defining themselves and what they do."
--Bill Cosby "Herbie and I have been brothers since before electricity! One of my favorite things about Herbie is that both he and I aim to de-categorize music; we don't think of music in terms of genres or rules, we both live outside the box and love good music, no matter the genre. If you like piano, or jazz, or music, or great stories, or life itself, you will love this book. Herbie Hancock has been electrifying audiences for decades, and now he's about to do it to readers, too."
--Quincy Jones "Herbie Hancock's new book "Possibilities "elevates, transforms, and illumines consciousness. This wealth of insight opens wider the space of possibilities with raw honesty, courage, and curiosity. It takes us into a place of brilliant alchemy of God's life, music, and humor. Genius IS genius does."
--Carlos Santana

"Herbie Hancock has led a fascinating life. And the story of that life makes a fascinating book."
--Peter Keepnews, "The New York Times Book Review" (Editor's Choice)
"Few jazz biographies are perfect, though Hancock's "Possibilities" come closer than some."
--Kevin Whitehead, "Fresh Air"
"["Possibilities" is] very effective at its paramount task: getting the reader to dig into the catalog of this restless jazz genius with newly edified ears."
"--""The Boston Globe"
"Hancock, a Buddhist, writes about his spiritual journey in "Possibilities" but isn't preachy about his its effect on his life, relationships, music and philosophy. His stories of famous jazz artists are done with reverence and a sense of reporting, for the record, many artists who didn't achieve as much fame as others but should be given their equal artistic due."
"--""New York Journal of Books"
"Revelations come thick and fast in this terrific page-turner. Honest, self-effacing, and packed with good stories "Possibilities" presents an intimate self-portrait of one of popular music's most influential and affable keyboardists."
"--""Mojo Magazine"
""Possibilities" is a vividly written reflection on his own life--and a way of living."
"--""Milwaukee Shepherd Express"
"A mind blowing who's who of jazz music . . . Amazing work here for musician and fan alike."
"--""Ebony.com"
"As the pianist relates his outre journey toward redemption, it becomes clear that spirituality and love have played overarching roles in his continued success and evolution."
"--""Alibi"
"Melodically weaving the notes of his personal life around his exploration of numerous music genres from classical and R&B to funk and hip-hop, renowned pianist Hancock elegantly composes a tuneful sound track of his life in music."
"--""Publishers Weekly "(Starred Review)
"A warm, inspiring book by a man who seems to have little ego despite a career spent near the peak of his art. Recommended reading for jazz aficionados."
"--Kirkus"
"He has remained true to his art and his (Buddhist) poise during turbulent times, and his description of his upbringing and encounters with often turbulent individuals (not least of them Davis) provides a unique slant on America's musical scene."
"--Booklist "
"Brilliant . . . reveals the method behind this remarkable jazz performer . . . a testament to a man who faced in life what seemed impossible and made it possible."

Descripción Viking Adult, 2014. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. First Print. 344 pages including an Index but not including a nice selection of black & white photos. Signed boldly to the title page by Herbie Hancock in black sharpie. In Brand New condition. From his days with Miles Davis and his Second Great Quintet through his innovations during the jazz fusion era to today, with the many great acts of his career, Herbie Hancock has and is considered to be one of the five greatest Jazz pianist and composers of all time. A recipient of the Kennedy Center Award and an Academy Award among others. In Herbie Hancock's first book, he reveals his long journey of music, family and friends. Would make a fine addition to any Herbie Hancock, Jazz or music collection. Would also make a great holiday gift. Paypal always welcome. We pack and ship all our books with care in cardboard boxes. Additional photos emailed upon request. Signed by Author(s). Nº de ref. de la librería 11-12-14-shelf-2

Descripción Viking, 2014. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Flawless brand new 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover and dust jacket boldly and legibly SIGNED by Herbie Hancock on the title page without personalization and in our presence at a recent event in Los Angeles. "Arguably the most influential practitioner of modern jazz piano since Thelonius Monk. From the bebop stylings of Bud Powell and Wynton Kelly, the classical legacy of Ravel and Debussy, and not least from the diverse genres of contemporary music exploding around him, Hancock has forged a style all his own." -- NPR. Herbie waxes eloquent about his struggles and triumphs, his family and his faith (he has been a practicing Buddhist for 40 years), and most especially, about his music. About the book, Quincy Jones says, "If you like piano or jazz, or music, or great stories, or life itself, you will love this book." We will pack this immaculate collector's copy in bubble-wrap to protect its corners and ship it in a sturdy box to make sure it arrives in perfect condition. Signed by Author(s).
