The music of Chick Corea and new compositions

After their very successful run with the music of Stevie Wonder, the band now turns back to the jazz pantheon. An inspiration to everyone in the Collective, the works of Chick Corea will be the focus in Fall 2012. Each band member will also contribute an original composition, commissioned by SFJAZZ.

About Chick Corea

Among the many giants in jazz history, none stands taller than Armando “Chick” Corea. While still in his twenties he developed an utterly unique signature sound, on both acoustic and electric keyboards. Quickly noticed by Miles Davis in the late ‘60s, Corea appeared on Filles de Kilimanjaro and Bitches Brew, two of the era’s landmark recordings. As a leader, Chick’s adventurous work with Return to Forever helped define the fusion movement of the ‘70s and introduced younger stars such as Al Di Meola and Stanley Clarke. Corea’s numerous collaborations include stunning duets with Herbie Hancock, Gary Burton and Bobby McFerrin, as well as historic groups with Michael Brecker, Joe Farrell, John McLaughlin, Hubert Laws, John Patitucci, Steve Gadd, Roy Haynes and dozens of others. Several of his compositions, including “Spain,” “La Fiesta” and “Windows” have become established standards in the jazz canon. Chick has been nominated for 52 Grammy Awards, winning 18 of them to date. Now 70, he continues to tour worldwide with an array of contemporary jazz projects.

"I've been looking forward to working on Chick's music with the Collective for a very long time. He is one of my biggest inspirations as a player and composer and his music has in many ways shaped the direction of jazz for the past 40 years. I'm sure that delving into his vast songbook will be an amazing experience for the band, and for our audiences. " — Miguel Zenón
"Chick encompasses my definition of a true and complete artist: a master of his instrument and a prolific composer who continues to explore new arenas and break down barriers between musical genres. Without doubt, he has been and continues to be one of the strongest living musical forces of our time... a great source of inspiration. " — Edward Simon
"I love Chick's music because it's playful and deep at the same time, and you always feel that there's a restless creative spirit behind it. Since he burst onto the scene in the late ‘60s he's been a major factor in defining the various movements within jazz right up to the present day, and his tunes are some of the most played worldwide. " — Matt Penman
