Now in his seventies, the pianist-composer Chick Corea will be celebrated during JALC’s 25th Anniversary Season with a multi-venue “festival.” On the Rose Theater portion, Corea will reconnect with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in a reprise of their highly acclaimed collaborations in 2011, performing deeply original arrangements by JLCO members of Corea’s masterful songbook. This interplay showcases Corea’s singular abilities as a musical storyteller, with vocabulary that contain a global range of reference—Bach and bebop, Bartok and the blues, Mozart and montunos, Ravel and rumba, Stravinsky and samba, all tempered with the language of swing and the Spanish Tinge.
Free pre-concert festival, May 17 and 18 at 6:30pm.
Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm.
