Add to calendar 2014-08-09 2014-08-09 35 Chick Corea -- Solo Piano at Stanford Jazz Festival at Bing Concert Hall Among the “redwoods” in jazz history, none stands taller than NEA Jazz Master Chick Corea. While still in his twenties, Corea forged new ground as both an acoustic pianist and composer with the masterpiece Now He Sings, Now He Sobs. Working with Miles Davis in the late ‘60s, he advanced the use of electric piano on some of the era’s landmark recordings, such as Filles de Kilimanjaro and Bitches Brew. Chick’s innovations with Return to Forever helped define the fusion movement and introduced younger stars like Al Di Meola and Stanley Clarke. His collaborations include stunning duets with Herbie Hancock, Gary Burton and Bobby McFerrin, as well as groundbreaking groups with Michael Brecker, Joe Farrell, John McLaughlin, Hubert Laws, John Patitucci, Roy Haynes, Steve Gadd and many others in both jazz and classical music. Nominated for an astounding 61 Grammy Awards, Corea has won 20 of them. A true living legend at 72, Chick continues to thrill listeners with The Vigil, his latest electro-acoustic project. This rare solo piano performance is dedicated to the memory of flamenco guitar icon Paco de Lucía, who passed in February. Bing Concert Hall, Stanford University false DD/MM/YYYY
