HERBIE HANCOCK: POSSIBILITIES / / Magnolia Home Entertainment / / $26.98 Throughout his career, spanning more than 40 years, Herbie Hancock has always resisted being pegged as one type of artist. At his core, he's a jazz man, composer of such standards as 1962's "Watermelon Man" and 1965's "Maiden Voyage." But like his former boss, Miles Davis, the Chi-Town native is a restless musical spirit whose scope includes bold, shifting elements of various genres. Classical, pop, bop, hip-hop, funk, R&B, the blues, folk, samba -- all have been explored and dismantled at different times in Hancock's music.
