Over his half-century as a professional improviser, Chick Corea has navigated multiple stylistic environments, moved back and forth between electric and acoustic feels, written books of music for a multitude of projects with friends both old and new, recontextualized iconic units from his past, and created fresh, new ensembles. During this celebration of Corea's music across all three venues in Rose Hall, Corea himself will draw upon these experiences to curate several specially selected units to interpret some of his favorite compositions. In The Allen Room, we feature two of Corea's young piano friends: Israeli piano prodigy Gadi Lehavi and Georgian-born pianist Beka Gochiashvili, the youngest winner of the Montreux Jazz Competition. Grammy Award-winning bassist John Patitucci; trumpeter Wallace Roney -- a mentee of Miles Davis; one of New York's most in demand drummers and current Corea-collaborator, Marcus Gilmore; and tenor saxophonist Ravi Coltrane (5/17 only) join this hand-picked unit.
