All About Jazz
Through it all, Hancock’s voice is clear but never overbearing. Sounding more like a member of the numerous bands rather than their leader and producer, he demonstrates yet again on Possibilities that his reach is truly without limits. […]

erasing cloud
Carlos Santana reportedly told Hancock that Possibilities is his Supernatural, the landmark album that won Santana two Grammys in 1999. The comparison is not a superficial one, as Hancock has plumbed depths of pop music at a time when such depths are thought to be long gone. […]

allmusic
Jazz fans may be disappointed, but pop fans will be delighted; there is a lot here to like. […]
