Chick Corea: Solo Piano From Mozart to Monk to Corea, Delhi
Iconic keyboardist, composer, DownBeat Hall of Famer, NEA Jazz Master, fourth-most nominated artist in Grammy Awards history - Chick Corea - makes his India tour debut. Come November, you can witness him perform his solo work, embracing the work of his piano heroes (Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk and many others), gorgeous classical excursions and of course his deep catalog of classic Corea compositions.
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. After recording Piano Improvisations in 1971, he became the first jazz pianist of his era to release such a recording. This groundbreaking album opened the floodgates to a new genre of solo piano that continues strong today, which he is constantly exploring and strengthening.
