CHICK COREA TRIO · in the Venetian Theater
Cultural Pursuit members and their guests are invited to join me for an evening of jazz with the Chick Corea Trio, the headliner of the all day 2016 Jazz Festival on Saturday, July 23rd. Attending members are invited to join me at the Caramoor Members’ Reception area during intermission.
Before the performance, we can either have dinner together at a restaurant in nearby Bedford, or bring a picnic dinner and wine – we can determine that closer to the date, depending on preferences and the weather forecast.
Chick Corea has attained iconic status in music. The keyboardist, composer and bandleader is a DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, as well as the fourth-most nominated artist in Grammy Awards history with 63 nods – and 22 wins, in addition to a number of Latin Grammys. From straight-ahead to avant-garde, bebop to jazz-rock fusion, children’s songs to chamber and symphonic works, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his career since playing with the genre-shattering bands of Miles Davis in the late ’60s and early ’70s.
