Chick Corea to perform live in rare studio session

On the heels of a nearly month-long celebration of his 70th birthday at the Blue Note in New York City (which included performances with ten different bands and 30 musicians) legendary jazz pianist Chick Corea will offer a rare opportunity for radio listeners tomorrow afternoon on KPLU.

Corea arrives in Seattle today for four nights and eight shows at Jazz Alley in a trio setting featuring Brian Blade on drums and Hans Glawischnig on bass. At 12:15 p.m. Pacific Time tomorrow, however, Corea will be joining me in the KPLU Seattle performance studio for a live interview and solo piano performance. This is a real treat for me and our listeners, as Corea so rarely offers performances of this type.

Chick Corea is a 16-time Grammy award winner, a member of the DownBeat Hall of Fame and was the 2010 DownBeat artist of the year. He is widely considered to be one of the most creative musicians on the jazz scene, and has had his hand in genres and styles ranging from straight ahead to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, children’s songs to chamber music.

During his month-long run at the Blue Note, Corea performed acoustic sets with Return To Forever, the Five Peace Band, Bobby McFerrin, Gary Burton, Herbie Hancock and many more.

Listeners can tune in at 12:15 PST tomorrow (Friday) afternoon on 88.5 FM in the Seattle/Tacoma area, or listen live on our website at kplu.org.

    In day to day life, the well known football players are becoming a role model to motivate the youths.
    Most online football managers give you a team when you
    sign up and you’re stuck with them forever, no matter how well you do.
    A further way to get far better lines with on-line sports activities betting is diminished
