From his legendary work with Miles Davis, to timeless duet collaborations with Herbie Hancock and Gary Burton, to his own groundbreaking groups including Return To Forever, the Chick Corea Elektric and Akoustic bands, Origin and the Chick Corea New Trio, composer and pianist Chick Corea has remained on the cutting edge of creative jazz since the sixties. In this program of conversation and solo and duet performances and with Marian McPartland, Chick Corea is clearly enjoying himself. Whether conversing with Marian about his approach to composition and piano playing and his musical influences—from Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart—or digging into the piano keyboard and exploring standards (like “Jitterbug Waltz” and “Monk’s Mood”) or his own classic compositions (“Brasilia” and “Spain”), Chick takes listeners on a fun, and revelatory, musical ride.
