Presented by Mesa Arts Center as part of the Performing Live Series
Pianist and composer Chick Corea joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra—a group he calls “the greatest big band on the planet”—to perform transformative new iterations of his music. Over the course of a legendary career, Corea has explored styles ranging from bebop, soul jazz, and fusion to Latin jazz and the avant-garde, earning him 24 GRAMMY Awards and counting. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s masterful arrangers have created unique big band versions of this music, showcasing the depth and imagination found in Corea’s compositions. This performance will also demonstrate why Corea and the members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra are considered some of the greatest jazz improvisers alive.
