Chick Corea & the Vigil with Tim Garland, Carlitos Del Puerto, Marcus Gilmore, Charles Altura, Luisito Quintero at Rio Theatre
No one can accuse Chick Corea of resting on his laurels. The 20-time Grammy award-winner and NEA Jazz Master personifies a rare artistic standard of excellence. Corea’s latest project, The Vigil features all new compositions and re-workings of old favorites. The band includes Tim Garland on saxophones, flute, bass clarinet; Charles Altura on guitar; Carlitos Del Puerto on bass; Marcus Gilmore on drums; and Luisito Quintero on percussion. From his early work with Mongo Santamaria, Stan Getz and Miles Davis, and his avant-garde adventures in Circle (with Anthony Braxton), to pioneering fusion with Return To Forever, Corea tackles it all with a contagious enthusiasm.
