  • Chick Corea Jazz Keyboard Demo — Rhythmic Displacement

    4:08

    Rhythmic and Melodic displacement on piano and keyboards – especially during jazz improvisation – is the lesson of this demonstration from Chick Corea.

    Constantly evolving rhythmic changes are a hallmark of Chick's sound. With the Carlitos Del Puerto on acoustic bass and Richie Barshay on drums, he demonstrates how he introduces these modifications.

    About the instruments they are playing:

    Yamaha KX5 Keytar
    Chick Corea uses during this concert the Yamaha KX5, a master laptop keyboard from 1984. This is a 37-key keyboard covering a range from C2 to C5 with MIDI connectors permitting the remote stand-up performance of the keyboard instruments.

    Yamaha TRB JP TDR
    John Patitucci plays the Yamaha TRB JP II, a 6-string electric bass. The TRB series was born during the'80s to cover a wider tonal range, both in the low and high frequencies. The four-layer laminate body is constructed from veneers of curly maple, ash, alder and maple. This design produces a precise and intense resonance throughout the instrument's register.

    Ibanez 540S-LPF
    Frank Gambale plays the 540S-LPF Dessert Yellow. His first signature model, the FGM100 (the first of the Frank Gambale series) by Ibanez, introduced in 1991 is based on this 540S-LPF but has different pickups. The FMG100 was one of the 15 guitars that had been stolen from Frank Gambale house in 2004.

    Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone, serial #201695
    Eric Marienthal always showed a predilection for the Alto Saxophone. The Mark VI was introduced by Selmer Paris in 1954. Many Jazz giants have used the Mark VI, including Dexter Gordon, Ornette Coleman, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter and John Coltrane.

  • Chick Corea Performs the National Anthem

    1:59

    To cap off 2016, Chick has written a super-hip new arrangement of our National Anthem.

    In case you missed its debut for capacity crowds at the New York Giants' MetLife Stadium (80,000+ fans) and the New York Knicks' Madison Square Garden (another 20,000+), watch the video below.

    Chick somehow found time to create this very Corea-ified new take in the midst of an unprecedented run of sold-out shows in celebration of his 75th Birthday, held at the Blue Note Jazz Club, NY (Oct - Dec '16). Undeniably the greatest jazz birthday party ever.

    In our wild political times, the Anthem has taken on some new meaning. But the fundamental freedom of expression that our country was founded on, which is embodied in the spirit of jazz, shines through brightly on Chick's new arrangement.

  • Chick Corea - Piano Solo @ Padova Jazz Festival 2018

    17:11

    Padova Jazz Festival 2018
    Teatro Verdi - 24 novembre 2018

    CHICK COREA piano solo

    Gli esordi di Chick Corea (nato nel Massachusetts nel 1941) verso la metà degli anni Sessanta non sono affatto trascurabili: suona con Blue Mitchell e nel giro della musica latina con Willie Bobo e Mongo Santamaría. Ma tutto ciò scompare nel raggio accecante di quel che avvenne poi: alla fine degli anni Sessanta Corea entra nel gruppo di Miles Davis, ed è lui il tastierista che sta dietro la svolta elettrica che cambiò il corso del jazz (In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew). Contemporaneamente Corea dà una sterzata alla sua carriera da leader e dopo le arditezze progressiste del gruppo Circle si sintonizza sulla nuova onda del jazz elettrico con una band entrata nel mito: i Return to Forever.

    Con il riflusso del jazz rock, genere del quale Corea va annoverato tra i ‘padri fondatori’, si apre un nuovo periodo per il pianista, capace di reinventarsi continuamente e di dar vita a nuove band accolte sempre con l’attenzione dovuta ai grandi eventi. Indimenticabili sono le sue collaborazioni con Gary Burton, Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, Miroslav Vitous e Roy Haynes. Poi i decenni a noi più vicini, con le sue memorabili Akoustic Band ed Elektric Band e nuovi sensazionali accostamenti musicali: con Bobby McFerrin, Pat Metheny, Béla Fleck, John McLaughlin e Kenny Garrett, Hiromi, Stefano Bollani…

    Nella dimensione del piano solo, Corea lascia emergere la sua vena rapsodica, la ricerca di stimoli insoliti per l’ispirazione musicale (talvolta coinvolgendo il pubblico in prima persona). Ma soprattutto scava nel proprio repertorio compositivo ed esplora quello dei suoi idoli pianistici (Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk…), mettendoli a confronto con alcuni pesi massimi della musica classica.

    “I’m just trying to share my own way I look at music, with others.

    “Musicians, non-musicians, whoever is interested. And try to show a few basic things that I think are kind of true for everybody.

    “One of which is that an individual’s taste and his own judgment, what he likes, and what he doesn’t like, is his own God-given right, you could say.

    “Everyone has the right to like what they like, not like what they don’t like, listen to the kind of music they want to, not listen to the kind of music they don’t like. Say what you like, say what you don’t like.

    “There’s a kind of a code about that. A human right, a spiritual right.

    “And I want to encourage that in people. I want people, and musicians, to realize their own judgment and have them think for themselves about how they see art, especially. And trying to portray that and say that in various ways.

    “Share things I do, or just my opinion.

    “So improvisation is a big interest, with a lot of musicians. So I have my own ideas about what it is, and I know there are an infinite number of other ideas, so I’m just throwing my own idea into the pot here. About ‘What is improvisation?’

    “We did 5 shorts on that, so have a look.” – Chick

    TRANSCRIPT:

    Chick Corea: So this is the beginning. First one. Here we go. So we’re going to cover improvisation and Bill’s going to – we’re going to talk a little bit. We want to define it first.

    Bill Rooney: Start at the beginning.

    CC: I though that was a good idea, because when people ask me – musicians ask me, they say, “Well, how about improvising? How do you improvise? What’s it all about? What do you do? What do you think about?” All these various questions. I think to myself, well you know, I’ve never seen a satisfactory definition of improvisation. So, I want to try to give you what my – what I think of when I think of improvisation, which is something natural. Something natural you do.

    Improvising is living. Like, what I’m doing now is improvising. I have a thought in my head and I’m trying to get it out using the cumbersome medium of the english language. It’s really difficult. I mean I could go like this – [ plays a phrase ]. See that?

    I don’t have to then try to say in words what that was because that was improvisation. But to try and define it in words, it’s the natural thing you do that you already decided that you’re going to do something and you’re going to make a movement. So with improvisation, the decision that – there are decisions that have to be made. What kind of freedoms and what kind of rules.

    There’s freedoms, then there’s rules that you make. And that’s how you come about deciding how much improvisation there’s going to be. Like, you determine a pattern. Let’s use the term “pattern.” So let’s take, for an example, a pattern. I thought it would be good to start demonstrating right away, rather than trying to put a verbal definition.

    So, you take a pattern, how much freedom or how much rules and decisions you want in it. Let’s take an example. I thought we’d use “Armando’s Rhumba.” Some people know “Armando’s Rhumba”.

    This tune here – [ plays “Armando’s Rhumba”]

    Okay here’s the first phrase of “Armando’s Rhumba.” It’s written right here. If you can read music it’s starting right at “A.”

    So, thats the first phrase. If I’m going to play it exactly I’m going to play that exactly. [ Plays “Armando’s Rhumba” ]

    Not much improvisation cause I already decided. So let me play the same phrase and keep everything pretty much the same but let me change the melody a little bit. I could do something like – [ plays “Armando’s Rhumba” ]

    That was a lot of change, I mean comparatively. Or I could do – [ plays “Armando’s Rhumba”]

    Or I could do even closer. I could change the tempo. [ Plays “Armando’s Rhumba” ]

    It’s endless. So with that kind of thing you have the pattern and you decide how closely you want to stick to the pattern and the improvisation part comes as what freedom you give.

    For instance, what if I say to myself, I decide – it’s all decisions. What if I decide I’m going to play something before I start the melody? I’m going to improvise something and then play the melody. So I’m going to go add it, it’s free, I can play what I want. [ Plays tune and “Armando’s Rhumba” ]

    There you go. Like, play something even stranger: [ Plays tune and “Armando’s Rhumba” ]

    See there. There would be an infinite number of ways to take a theme. So thats one basic way to describe improvisation. It’s what you decide will be there as a pattern and what you decide you’ll be free about interpretive. Improvisation.

    6:00

    I wrote You're Everything when I was sharing an apartment with Neville Potter in 1971. Neville had a day job, and I'd be working at night. So I'd write melodies and leave them for Neville on a cassette recorder. And I'd tell him See if you could put some lyrics to this... And he'd come back with a set of lyrics. We did that with a lot of tunes: with Sometime Ago, 500 Miles High -- other tunes of that era. It was a really good working relationship. We've remained friends through the years.

  • Chick Corea & Gary Burton: Tiny Desk Concert

    20:08

    June 13, 2016 by SURAYA MOHAMED • Sometimes big-name artists need special attention. But in this case, it wasn't because they've been jazz pioneers and innovators since the 1960s and are considered to be founding fathers of jazz fusion, not to mention two of the most important jazz figures performing today. It's not because they've collectively recorded more than 100 albums and won 29 Grammy Awards. The agitation was because both of their instruments couldn't fit behind Bob Boilen's Tiny Desk.

    There were logistical hurdles to overcome before the jazz giants' arrival. We had to move the desk to make a bigger stage. Piano movers hauled the 900-pound Yamaha C7 grand piano from our first-floor performance studio up the freight elevator to the fourth-floor Tiny Desk area. But weeks of meticulous measuring and planning paid off when the rented vibes were delivered and just fit alongside the piano.

    Gary Burton and Chick Corea were in town for the 2016 NEA Jazz Masters Concert. The NEA Jazz Masters fellowship is the highest honor our nation bestows on jazz artists. Each year, the program honors a select few living legends who have made exceptional contributions to the advancement of jazz. Burton was a newly appointed 2016 recipient, while Corea received the honor in 2006.

    These friends first played together 44 years ago, when they recorded their very first album, Crystal Silence. In his autobiography, Gary Burton tells the story:

    We set aside three days for the recording. Except for ... one tune in Munich, Chick and I hadn't worked together before Berlin, so we figured we would need a fair amount of time to choose songs and finalize arrangements. But to our amazement, it all went incredibly fast. We would spend maybe twenty minutes creating an arrangement, and then record. We did every song in just one take, except that we required a second spin through Senor Mouse.
    The record was finished in just a few hours, and the two realized they had a unique musical chemistry with the ability to anticipate each other's improvisational ideas. That album went on to become a classic: flawless yet fresh and forever new.

    A few thousand concerts later, the jazz masters showed up at NPR HQ to perform a concert at our newly expanded Tiny Desk. On this day, it had been almost two years since Chick Corea and Gary Burton had played together — the longest break they'd ever had. But once again, their remarkable ability to connect was demonstrated in two songs they play together all the time.

  • Chick Corea: Vigilette | JAZZ NIGHT IN AMERICA

    1:15:13

    Pianist Chick Corea has lived many lives as a musician, from post-bop wunderkind to free-jazz maverick to fusion explorer to chamber-jazz eminence. Jazz Night caught up with Corea during a recent gig at Scullers in Boston while he was on tour with a new trio he calls Vigilette.

    By NATE CHINEN

    Pianist Chick Corea has lived many lives as a musician, from post-bop wunderkind to free-jazz maverick to fusion explorer to chamber-jazz eminence. That imprecise tally leaves out a lot in an expansive career — but, more to the point, it creates the false impression that Corea compartmentalizes his musical output, when the truth suggests something far more holistic.

    Jazz Night in America caught up with Corea during a recent gig at Scullers in Boston — just across the river from Chelsea, Mass., where he was born and raised. He was on tour with a new trio he calls Vigilette, with Carlitos Del Puerto on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums. The set list combined songbook standards like On Green Dolphin Street with originals like Rhumba Flamenco, each number delivered with Corea's brand of articulate flair.

    A few days after the performance, Corea sat down with Christian McBride — our host, and his longtime musical collaborator — for a collegial and far-ranging conversation. They discuss the first time Corea saw Miles Davis, an experience that changed his life, and one he recalls with absolute detail. Corea also reflects on the role of an artist: We have a mission to go out there and be an antidote to war, and all of the dark side of what happens on Planet Earth, he says. We're the ones that go in and remind people about their creativity.

    Jazz San Javier tiene el placer de presentar el regreso de Chick Corea al Festival, tras diecinueve años de su recordado concierto con el grupo Origin y la participación como invitado especial de Gary Burton, en la segunda edición del mismo. Con una brillantísima carrera que comenzó en 1966 como líder de sus propios proyectos; con 20 premios Grammy en su haber y 51 nominaciones a los mismos, Chick Corea es la cima del piano entre los músicos de su generación, junto a Herbie Hancock y Keith Jarrett. Innovador con sus proyectos eléctricos como “Return To Forever” y la “Elektric Band”, esta leyenda viva del jazz nos muestra su mejor faceta de pianista genial con sus proyectos acústicos. De ellos, el más brillante es la Akoustic Band, una reunión, que se percibe como el evento jazzístico del año, con otros dos grandes del jazz, John Patitucci y Dave Weckl.
