More than a musician, a living myth.
Del #jazz, above all of that line that has its roots in #ritmo_latino and #rock.
Chick Corea is the first big name of Musart Festival 2018, a Florentine festival that has transformed the central square of Santissima Annunziata into an elegant open-air theater for three summers.

After twenty years, it will be the opportunity to see again on stage the Chick Corea Akoustic Band, which aligns Chick with John Patitucci and Dave Weckl, extraordinary musicians and longtime friends.

The training reports the lyrical flights experienced in the Elektric Band in a classic dimension for an acoustic trio plan. The energy at the piano and Chick Corea's compositional vein blend with the mastery of John Patitucci on bass and the brilliance of Dave Weckl on drums.

When legendary Chick Corea recorded the Improvisations Piano for ECM Records in 1971, he was the first jazz pianist of his era to make such a recording. This pioneering album literally opened the door to a new kind of piano played in solo that continues today.
Chick Corea has been recognized as a musical icon. The keyboardist and composer has been named legendary by the Downbeat Hall of Fame and a master of its kind by the NEA Jazz Masters, as well as the fourth most nominated artist in the Grammy Awards with 63 nominations - and 22 wins, plus a number of Latin Grammys.
From avant-garde to avant-garde, from #bebop to #fusion #jazz_rock, from children's songs to chamber and symphonic works, from when I start playing in the incredible formations put on by Miles Davis in the late 60s and early 70s , Chick managed to acquire an incredible number of musical bases.
Yet Chick has never been more productive than in the twenty-first century, whether playing the acoustic piano and electric keyboards, or driving different formations or performing alone.
That said, Mr. Corea has been named Artist of the Year by readers of DownBeat Magazine three times this decade. Born in 1941 in Massachusetts, Chick remains a tireless creative spirit, reinventing himself continuously through his art. As The New York Times said, "Chick Corea is a luminary and an exuberant and eternal young man".
