Jazz at Lincoln Center Celebrates the career of Chick Corea

Now in his seventies, the pianist-composer Chick Corea will be celebrated during JALC’s 25th Anniversary Season with a multi-venue festival. On the Rose Theater portion, Corea will reconnect with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in a reprise of their highly acclaimed collaborations in 2011, performing deeply original arrangements by JLCO members of Corea’s masterful songbook. This interplay showcases Corea’s singular abilities as a musical storyteller, with vocabulary that contain a global range of reference—Bach and bebop, Bartok and the blues, Mozart and montunos, Ravel and rumba, Stravinsky and samba, all tempered with the language of swing and the Spanish Tinge.

Free pre-concert festival, May 17 and 18 at 6:30 p.m., with live music and tastings from Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, North Coast Brewing Co., Runner & Stone, and Apollo White Nights Vodka with Highland Restaurant Group.

Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7 p.m.

Tickets start at $30 and can be purchased here
