Jazz at the Center: Tribute to Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea
This concert celebrates the American jazz pianists and composers. Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Hancock joined the Miles Davis Quintet, where he helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the post-bop sound. Corea’s compositions “Spain”, “500 Miles High”, “La Fiesta”, “Armando’s Rhumba” and “Windows”, are considered jazz standards. Corea was a member of Miles Davis’s band in the late 1960s, where he participated in the birth of jazz fusion.
