A few weeks ago, LAist was invited to see Herbie Hancock perform live, at the Nissan Live studio in Century City. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, Nissan Live Sets on Yahoo! Music is a series of performances attended by fans (plus a friend) for an intimate show of around 400 that features A-list artists, and released only on Yahoo! Music. Previous shows mentioned by LAist include Iggy and the Stooges, Lenny Kravitz, PJ Harvey, and Wyclef Jean. Other artists featured include Beck, Christina Aguilera, Maroon 5, the Mars Volta, and Trisha Yearwood.

The audience was lucky enough to see a superb group of musicians (including LA fixture and drumming sensation Vinnie Colaiuta) collaborating with special guests DJ C-Minus, up-and-comer Sonya Kitchell, and a very rare appearance by Joni Mitchell.
