Da Camera Jazz presents pianist Chick Corea
Da Camera kicks off its jazz series with the legendary Chick Corea in a solo piano performance. When Chick Corea recorded Piano Improvisations on the ECM label in 1971, he was 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.
The NEA Jazz Master makes his long-awaited Da Camera debut. The composer of several jazz standards including Spain and Windows, Corea was a member of the Miles Davis quintet, went on to be a major figure in jazz fusion in the 1970s with the band Return To Forever, and has led many celebrated ensembles, most recently Chick Corea and The Vigil.
