Friday Giveaway! Win a Pair of Tickets to See Chick Corea: Solo Piano on April 19

March 28, 2014

When the legendary artist Chick Corea recorded “Piano Improvisations” on the ECM label in 1971, he was the first jazz pianist of his era to release such a recording. This groundbreaking album literally opened the floodgates to a new genre of solo piano that continues strong today.

With the release of a new album, “Portraits,” Corea has embarked upon a world tour with a presentation that is as fresh and innovative as ever. With a perfect balance of in-the-moment improvisation, Corea classics, jazz standards, classical renderings and selections from the inimitable “Children’s Songs,” it is a must-see concert if there ever was one.

The title of the latest CD, “Portraits,” derives from something Corea occasionally includes in his solo shows — when the spirit moves him. The artist asks for volunteers from the typically packed house, and sits them down one at a time next to the piano. He then proceeds to paint a musical “portrait” unique to each individual. It’s uncanny how the personality of the person is captured in Corea’s improvisations. It’s pure Chick Corea spirit of play. Come see for yourself.
