After his huge Grammy win for River: The Joni Letters, Herbie Hancock has teamed up once again with the woman who inspired his Album of the Year. Jazz and folk reunited when Hancock and Mitchell performed last week for Yahoo!’s Nissan Live Sets. (Such pop artists as Christina Aguilera, Maroon 5, and Lenny Kravitz have also delivered intimate gigs on Yahoo!’s custom-built stage on Los Angeles’ Twentieth-Century Fox lot.)

During the two-and-a-half-hour show, Mitchell showcased three of her songs — “River,” “Tea Leaf Prophesy,” and “Hana” — while Hancock, backed by a top-notch band, brought out the funk with classics like “Chameleon” and “Watermelon Man,” and resurrected his own crossover hit, “Rock It” — much to the crowd’s delight (see full set list after the jump). The performance will debut on Yahoo! Music on April 1.
