NYJO joins forces with award-winning saxophonist Tim Garland to play the ground-breaking music of Chick Corea. Garland’s work on Corea’s The New Crystal Silence album won him a Grammy in 2009 and makes him the best collaborator to honour the virtuoso composer. Joining him on stage is an 18-piece NYJO orchestra, directed by Mark Armstrong.
Regarded as one of the best improvisational jazz musicians of all time, American composer, keyboardist, and bandleader, Chick Corea is better known for his unforgettable works ‘Spain’, ‘500 Miles High’, and ‘La Fiesta’, which made him a jazz fusion pioneer.
This night of celebration is an opportunity to see the best of up-and-coming talent in UK jazz commemorating the great Chick Corea!
